Hey all, I have recently noticed my saw is not running very well when I’ve been cutting wood. It idles fine and sits there beautifully but when I rev it up and start cutting it seems to almost backfire a bit and kind of splutters. Don’t think it’s the high jet maybe be spark related. Any help would be great.
You're right,it wouldn't be your hi jet,it'd be your lo jet.Get your saw warmed up by running a few minutes,then try turning the lo jet out 1/8-1/4 turn & try it.If it persists,then it could possibly be one of 2 things - your points might need to be cleaned & regapped,or the condenser is begionning to break down.If it's the condenser,it'll need top be replaced.If you're old school & like the points & condenser,Leon or Joyce might have those parts.If you'd like to convert to an electronic chip,which will eliminate the points & condenser,they can be had at your local small engine/saw shop,or on eBay.

If you decide to go with a chip, I've used the Nova II chip with good results. Make sure you get it as far from the coil as possible. A few years ago, someone tried chipping a saw and said they failed almost immediately. He said the only place he could find to mount the chip was on the coil. Most of the ones I have had, had no instructions, just a little pic. I think the first one I did on my Super 1050, said to keep it away from the coil. I've always been able to follow the switch wire out and mount it in fresher, cooler air. The 1050 was done well over 10 years ago and still fires right off.
