Tricky to find non-ethanol gas. Everywhere around here has "up to 10% ethanol additive"

Anybody have an actual picture of how these lines go together on the upper part of this intake boot (carb chamber)? I got a little confused and youtube videos just aren't detailed enough.

Got it put back together and runs pretty good. The chain oiler is working pretty good too. I want to thank everyones help on this forum. The YouTube video helped a little too.
BTW what's the procedure for adjusting those low/high idle screws? It's running fine but I think the high could be adjusted a little.

Search for "carb tuning" and sit back for about 6 days worth of reading. Lots of information, and opinions, on here. Don't go with the first procedure you read.

Just be sure you warm up the saw before trying to adjust the H screw. The L screw is the only idle screw other than the idle speed screw, the H is high speed only. Sometimes the L screw will affect the high speed and off-idle performance but the H screw adjustment shouldn't affect the idle..
