I haven't seen an answer to this question. I have tested mine and it flows at maybe 2 small drops per second. Is This enough fuel flow?To verify if the fuel supply from the tank is an issue, with the tank removed just half fill it with fuel and see how fast it dribbles out of the outlet port.
That is not nearly enough fuel flow, If the filter isn't too restricted, it should flow a continuous thin stream rather than drips. I have found that just cutting the front squished part off (about 1/2") and reinstalling the filter greatly improves flow.I haven't seen an answer to this question.

I was going to suggest that you may have developed an air leak, possibly via worn crankshaft seals or through the pulse-type oil pump...but then you got it running. Shot that theory to hell, but congratulations!Mostly put back together. Without bar and chain, this engine runs like a dream. UNTIL the throttle trigger is released. Then it dies out every time. I made a few turns in and out of the ide screw but this has no effect. I readjusted the hi and lo screws to fully closed and turned back 3/4 turn for both as this was stated in the mini mac 6 and 6a general service information document that I received from you. I was able to hold the throttle trigger just enough to keep it going and made adjustments to the lo screw. No dice either way. Any more advice?
