Great saw, they were very popular. Did you clean the carb thoroughly with a good solvent, I like a spray carb and choke cleaner. That is a reed ported saw, the reeds below the carburetor may not be sealing. You could also have an intake leak past the gaskets or crank shaft seals, a pressure test would spot this.
