Homelite chainsaw XL12 lopes
I have an old XL12 that behaves strangely. It will start and run, but at full throttle or when cutting it will run for maybe 5 seconds, then pretty much dies (almost like the spark cuts out) for a few seconds, but then magically starts running again. Has anyone had that sort of behavior? I would expect that the saw would just stop running. I haven't had one that runs like this. Spark? Fuel? I've tried adjusting the carb high setting a bit, and it does seem to run a little longer if I open it up, but it's open quite a bit now. Any experienced advice?
