Sounds like it is running a bit lean. Have you adjusted the air-fuel mixture? How is the compression?

Cheese you were right on with compression,pulled muffler and found scored piston. I had a parts saw an took piston and cylinder out of it for now,runs great again. Rebuild it in spring.

Great! Glad you got it and thanks for the update.

It's always nice to have parts around. I keep a parts saw for both of my regular saws.
