    MS461 carb adjustment: RPM too high on full throtle

    I’m trying to adjust the carburetor on my MS461 and I have 2 problems: 1- I cannot lower the RPM on full throttle below 13800. 2- when the saw is idling (2800-2900rpm), the chain run a little bit (it moves a inch every 1-2 seconds). Is that normal? Thanks
