Well I've got a chainsaw and it is running for 15 seconds then dies. I think it is just using the fuel from the prime. I have cleaned the carb all new fuel lines and primer. I have tried lots of different settings for the high and low. I'm not sure to get a new carb for 12 pound or get a rebuild kit for 7 I'm swaying toward a rebuild kit.

do you get a good spark ? the plug could be breaking down
