I turned over saw in every orientation and couldn't find any fuel leak. So that's good, must have been dreaming.
I put the new metering spring in the carb. Could not make it pop off up to 30 PSI. It did reseat and held when I manually made it pop. No carb leaks, installed in saw and fired right up with good idle and good acceleration. Still no RPM meter yet so have no idea of running speeds.
Also, cut the top off the stump of tree I dropped last year. It was 16 degrees.
