McCulloch chainsaw 310/320

Had saw along time, now it wants to stop running after a few minutes of use. tried to adjust high speed but not much luck.
All I can think of it is the carb. would it be worth it to rebuild or does someone think it might be something else? And is it a big deal to rebuild one myself?
THANKS FOR ANY REPLY

I think you're on the right track. The rubber parts get stiff & gummed up with age. A rebuild isn't that hard, usually harder to get the carb off the saw!!! Clean it up & put a kit in it & you should be good to go. Walbro & Zama have great websites for info. Roger

Probably needs a rebuild, but if it dies after running a few minutes, might want to check to see if fuel tank venting properly.
Check to see if it still has spark immediately after dieing, coils sometimes fail after they get warm.
