Mcculloch, Again

I just refreshenned my chain saw, McCulloch 3216. This consisted of new Chain, Fuel lines, filter, and spark plug. Ater doing this I tried cleaning the carb, still rough, then I fooled with the high and low mixture settings and cant seem to get it to run much at all. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I just dont want his one to beat me!

Hello Fly944!

Have you checked your exhaust port and exhaust for restrictions and carbon buildup? Start with both mixture screws backed out about 1 1/2 turns each. Fine tune from there.
