06/04/02 - Carburetor Problems! :
Well, I was afraid of this. I started the engine up today, and it would not idle. The only way it would run is if I had it WFO, or nearly WFO. I immediately suspected my throttle arm spring removal hack job as the source of my problems, and after a second disassembly, I'm willing to bet that's what it is.
I'm going to call Husqvarna Tech Support tomorrow just to confirm that I caused the problem, and see where to go from here. I have already called them once, and spoke to Alan who ROCKS! He has been really helpful, and is currently researching some information I need to make the shaft adaptor that will go over the engines stock axle. If you are in the market for a chainsaw, I suggest you seriously give Husky a look, as the saw seems to be made very solid from disassembly, and their tech support rocks!
As mentioned before, the saw I have chosen is the Husqvarna 350. Check their website for the vitals: http://www.usa.husqvarna.com/Folder_263/node533.asp?id=3
I have torn the carb down again, to take some pictures and try to help someone else from potentially repeating the same problem I ran into.
