Unhappy No start chainsaw

My sons 028 woodboss won't start, replaced carb kit, cleaned carb with air, set lever on needle, a few thousands below flush, it won't run log enough to adjust carb, spits some gas out carb, tried changing adjustments hi and low. Checked connection tube from carb to cylinder, seems to be ok, spark arrestor and muffler ok. I used to fix these for a living but I am stumped!

Sounds like a leaking crank shaft seal might be the culprit.

I guess it has plenty of compression? Is it flooding?

It seems like it isn't getting gas as it needs to keep running, sometimes choking a little will help to stay running

How about the compression? Take a look at the piston and see if it has scratches on it.

When you installed the carb kit, if you installed the new metering arm, put the old one back in unless it was very worn as it has the proper height setting. Have a good one. Geo
