    This is a 353 with heat grips and carb runs way to hot for summer time cutting . So I bought none cat muffler . But I haven't changed it because I need adjust carb. Does anyone know a good starting point after changing muffler .for carb adjustment ?
    It run perfect in past in winter even below 0f for last 13 years .

    Why not just keep the carb where it is to start?

    Install new muffler and start saw. May not need an adjustment. If it sounds lean open up Hi needle until it burbles(4 strokes). If adjusted correctly the 4 stroking should clear up when cutting.
