Too Much Fuel, Husqvarna 350

It all started with the saw idling to fast, so I turned the idle set screw back about a 1/2 to 3/4 of a turn, just enough to make the chain stop spinning. I used the saw for about a half of an hour, every time I let off of the throttle it would die, and took me pressing the primer bulb to get it to refire. I was just about done cutting when the saw acted like it was loosing power, then died and could not get it restarted. I took it up to the house turned the idle screw back up to where it was. after still not starting, I noticed saw fuel in the spark arrestor, and come to find up there was fuel in the lower unit of the saw. What do I do, to get the saw to start again???? HELP ME PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sounds like you need to disassemble, clean, and rebuild the carb with a rebuild kit. I believe the needle isn't sealing, or a diaphragm is leaking.
