The carb is likely still the problem. Got anyone around selling BG
products? Get some 44k. If not, get some SeaFoam. Put it in the tank
and run the machine - the problem should dissappear in about 20
minutes of running. Mabee a bit longer with the SeaFoam than with the

You have to wonder about the "adusting governor" part. If an engine
goes from running OK, to all of a sudden stalling under load,
that is the last thing I'd be doing. Checking that the governor isn't
stuck, jambed with debris, yes, adjusting, no.
Does it have a fuel filter? Strainer in the fuel tank? Verified
that if the fuel hose is disconnected from the carb and you pour
some gas in the tank if run out freely? Could also be a stuck carb
Well , in the case of the chainsaw that was recently given to me it
involved a complete disassembly , checking all transfer ports and
diaphragms, rinsing all the parts with clean fresh gas , wiping dry with a
lint-free wipe and reassembly . This little 14" Homelite is now my primary
saw . Hadn't been run in about 13 years ... I have a new chain and drive
sprocket for it , will install as soon as the current ones die .
The Poulan just got a new carb , because kits were only a couple of
dollars cheaper and it had a bad diaphragm .
On a related note to all those with snow blowers....
NEVER put your hand in the auger to clear a clog... Even if the engine is off.
This is because there can be significant energy stored in the compression of the engine and the chain or belt under tension.
If your hand is in there when that energy is released, well you know...
Be careful out there.
