I played around with my 14" saw and it still wont start. If I tip it up gas will run out of teh muffler. Does this mean I need a rebuild kit for the carburator?

Its a diamont boart saw built by EMAK. I dont think its a very common saw. The carburetor has walbro or something like that on it. Are these a carb you can get parts for?

Sound like your carburetor is flooding, most likely on a diaphragm carbuertor is caused by stiff metering diaphragm. I would clean and install a rebuild kit. If the carburetor has Walbro printed on it, you should be able to get repair parts for it.

www.walbro.com and go to service and aftermarket to look up parts for your carburetor. Parts should be available at most small engine or lawn mower shops as well as countless vendors on the internet.
