Stihl 08s can't keep running
Saw will sort of run if choke is partly on or worked to keep running.
If revved up to cut it might run for 30 seconds then keeps stalling.
Seems to idle fine.
Suspecting fuel issues, the carb has been apart several times.
Pulled fuel line out and inspected pickup filter. Screens look new and clear.
As a test I pull filter off and ran bare tube. With some adjusting of the HI and LO it seems like it runs fine.
Do those screens clog even when they look like new?
Do I need a carb kit?
The top of the tank has barbed fitting for some sort of intake filter. There is nothing there now. Do I need that filter to make it run properly?
What about the air filter. Could that be an issue. I don't remember checking that yesterday but I think I did when I first started trying to resolve this issue last fall. I gave up far while when I was loaned and saw to use.
Here's a picture. The unit has been cleaned up since the pic was taken.
