I found out how to replace the Fuel Pick-up Ass'y from inside the fuel tank, I need to know if there is a separate fuel filter that may also need replaced as well? I did find on the parts list schematic there is a fuel line filter but not sure on the model chainsaw I have were its located and if it needs replaced or not.
It seems to start fine for the first 5-10 minutes then it will bog and stall and from there it just won't stay running. Spark plug been replaced, air filter to & I cleaned everything I could on the saw but still having same problem.
You are correct there is only one fuel pick up assembly in this unit. Your other problems may be coming from problems with your carburetor. We have some article and videos that might assist you in getting you unit running correctly.
