Stihl 038 chainsaw will not idle.

I took the saw apart to replace a broken bolt on the gas tank housing, put it back together , it runs full throttle but will not idle. Was wondering if there is a certain way to install the intake manifold.

I don't know what you mean by "put on the engine & pulled thru the carb" ?? You shouldn't have to pull anything thru the carb... Is it possible the hole in the gasket for the pulse signal isn't lined up??? Gasket Maybe turned 1/2 turn???? Roger
