Cant seen to get this saw to idle , have to hold trigger to keep it running ,runs smooth, revs good, fuel coming out the exhaust ? Little history picked up the saw on market place rebuilt the carburetor new exhaust boot cleaned out fuel and oil tanks run40:1 Tru fuel just won't idle oils good does need a new bar came with a 20", I have good chains. Help please
I will check the carburetor to made sure, but I have kitted 15 or 20 Walbro's in the last few years and had fairly good success. Thought I had the arm level but maybe not , thank you for all your help , I will have to check into pressure testing I have no clue how that works or what tool it takes , thanks again
This a question for the House of Homelite community. Is there a possibility that an aftermarket carb kit for the Walbro WT carb has a metering diaphragm with a center button that's too tall like we've ran into with the chinese kits for the other Walbro carbs? That would cause the flooding condition at idle that the OP mentioned here.

I purchased 2 kits, some years ago. If i remember correctly, one for the HDC & 1 for the WT. Both kits had nub too high. I've heard that others had no problems. Maybe what factory made them.Yea the OEM kits are mostly from China, but to OEM specifications. Personally I will not use those cheap kits. Not worth the time or money.Just my preference. As blythkd said, what have other members experienced with them?
Still having idle issues bent the arm down level with the carburetor body no change. Put another rebuild carburetor on from donor saw starts fairly easy runs but will not idle and is dumping fuel in the muffler not as much as the 1st carburetor.
Gathered all the parts for a pressure tester,and 2 Walbro repair kits. Will redo the carburetors and than pressure test both no more crappy repair kits, hope it works will post when done.I do have one question I did not change the impulse hose to the carburetor could that cause the idle issue?
Good morning all, put my pressure tester together and tested the 1st carburetor I rebuilt that was on my 330, it holds 6 pounds of pressure very well with a China rebuild kit. the second carburetor I have not tested but will try to do that today.I was able to rebuild the carburetor on my little Wizard 316 (western Auto) that was sitting in a barn for 20 years or more I was told, could not tell what color it was because it was so dirty, but had spark, all cleaned up and started right up runs good, that carburetor held 6 pounds also, with a walbro repair kit from Stens.I will continue to use the better kits.Bought 2 kits so I could redo the donor carb for the 330 if it doesn't hold pressure, I see they don't come with the little spring glad I save them.
Its a good day in St.Louis finally got my 330 to idle . tested the carburetor its holds 6 pounds of pressure so I began tuning till I got it right. Idles,revs up, no smoke, and no gas out of the exhaust
