chainsaw stalling

Was recently given a older homelite chainsaw,It will only start and run while choking As soon as I turn the choke off saw stalls.Their is a product out their called sea foam My question is would it be safe to use on chain saws and would it solve my problem? Or am I looking at the problem wrong.

You can always try Sea Foam in it, but I imagine you need a complete carb kit. Usually on the older ones, the diaphragms get stiff and have to be replaced.

It's always a huge help when you give the model no.

Its a Homelite-- Textron I tried the sea foam but didn't help One thing I did notice as long as saw is in vertical postion (chain straight up) It starts and runs fine when I put it back in flat postion it runs for about 30 secs more then dies

It's the diaphragm in the pump that isn't working right = needs a complete carb kit.
