Are you storing it on it's side ? Can't help you as it sounds impossible the way a saw works but you could drain it at end of work.

Is the metering arm in the carb stuck down ?

Hi Stubby, gonna get it on the bench today. Where is the metering arm? I’ve had a look on an explosion of the carb but can only find a metering diaphragm, is it known as something else? Tia.

Under the diaphragm it operates a valve. Careful if you undo the screw holding it's spindle down as there is a lively spring underneath it. :D Make sure you get the diaphragm back the right way up.

All sorted, it was that little arm under the diaphragm. Thank you. Put it back together and she fired up straight away.

Bought a saw a while ago which wouldn't run... did a good once over then stripped the carb - somebody had put a new diaphragm in upside down 🤦‍♂️flipped it over, she's been a great saw ever since 😎
