I just used a drywall screw. The swap was super successful - it was a completely new and better saw afterwards. A big thank-you to Brad for outlining the procedure. This is the sort of thread that makes this such a great forum.For those that have done this, how do you get the brass plug out of the 215 carb?
Glad you revived this thread R/C.Just installed a new WT-215 on my MS180 and did a muffler mod. I just tweaked the throttle linkage a little to get it to go on and it goes wide open OK. I dialed it in and put 2 tanks through it. Runs great, starts so easy and idles without stalling. ( SUPER NICE UPGRADE ) A big thanks to all who shared their time and ideas to make this info available.
