    Hopefully the top ring was the one at .016. If not, it wouldn't hurt to put new ones on. Don't swap them because when they break in to their new positions the gap will jump more yet.

    Try cleaning the carb and put a new kit in it. Maybe there's a problem with certain gaskets not having holes exactly where they need to be. Post up some pics of the carb and maybe someone can id the problem. I'm not familiar with the model at all

    It was the top ring at .016".
    I am not familiar with anything Dolmar.
    I checked squish without a gasket, .021".
    So for giggles I put it back together.
    Pulled the carb apart again. I didnt see anything obvious, but I did tweak the fulcrum arm a bit.
    Its a Tilly. I do not have the guage for it either, so I winged it. Carb kit was done already.
    Put it to some wood, and it seemed ok.

    I am willing to stick rings and seals in it if I know it will run. If not, I will toss it in the field and shoot it with the .300WM.

    While I would love to see what a .300 WM does to a saw, I’d rather take it off your hands than see holes in it.

    Shoot something useless like an 029/290

    I despise the 029/290. To me its an overweight, underpowered, turd.

    Yeah. Tried offering Tsumura light bars (blades) with the saws and people here wanted a stock, worn OEM bar instead. Its enough to boggle the mind.

    I never understood the hype on the farmboss. Hard to work on them and a 026 is a way better saw for the $.

    Meh, those guys are only trying to make up for the fact that Magnum condoms fall off and their GF/Wife has to go see the gyno to get it removed.

    345 year 1999.
    Top end in good shape, she had a massive airleak though:

    They used cheap food oil to lube the b&c, the saw was pretty much full of it

    I've tried indexing plugs in saw's I don't believe it makes much difference in a saw now if they had intake and exhaust valves like four stroke then that would be different.

    Not to be argumentative but I have found that clocking the spark plug (with the ground strap on the TOP side, opening on the piston side) has shown a distinct and reliable brun pattern on the piston top that shows even and equal spread of the flame kernel.
