Homelite UT10415

I have an old red Homelite chainsaw Model No. UT10415. Saw runs fine and does a good job but fuel tank area gets really hot, almost to boiling point after a few minutes.Could it be the fuel mixture ratio or something else. Mixture I use is 32:1, the same for the old Automatic 150 which runs great.

Remove flywheel cover and insure it is getting good airflow. Also check spark arrestor screen to see if it is partially plugged w/ carbon.
