Angry Stihl 021 chainsaw will not rev

I have a Stihl 021 chainsaw that ran good last winter. It now will start and idle but not rev up for power. There is not a high mixture screw. I have cleaned the carburator and it is fine with good seals, gas is new and mixed correctly, filters are clean, spark plug is new, chain is free and brake is off. What now it starts fine and idles ok just will not rev up past half throttle.

Since it's been setting up for that long check the muffler/exhoust ports.Mud dobbers can reak havoc on a 2 cycle engine.

Thank you gentlemen
The chain is lose enough to spin by hand
No blocked ports as I have pulled muffler and cleaned
I did find crack in fuel line and replace it.
Saw starts easy and runs to about 1/3 throttle then will not rev up from there......???

If everything seems fine I would check the throttle linkage to see that when you press the trigger it goes to full throttle. Have a nice day. Geo

What does it do, go up part throttle and hold there, or does it try to die when you pass 1/2 throttle? For now, it sounds like you still have a carb problem.

Check the impulse hole behind the carburetor to make sure that it`s not partially blocked by a misaligned or damaged intake gasket.
if not check for blockage behind the fiber insulator (behind the carb) The impulse hole must be completely clear in order for the carb, to be pumped properly.
Is your throttle cable stretched out?
Is the fuel filter disconnected from the fuel line inside the tank?
