McCulloch Eager Beaver MAC 100 Series Chain Saw

When I inherited this saw, the piston was galled probably from using no 2-cycle oil in the fuel. I fixed that, got it started and it will idle. Now as soon as I feed fuel it immediately stops running. I have adjusted the low speed mixture screw, but to no avail.

Looking for any suggestions to get this saw running again.

Did you adjust the high speed screw too? You may need to open it up some.

Yes the high speed mixture valve adjustment got it up to speed. It is still very temper mental and sometimes just stops on its own accord when idling. I suppose I need to fiddle with the carb adjustments. I also need to find some wood to give it a test under load.
