Has anyone replaced the non-adjustable carb on an MS180 with an adjustable one? The few recommendations I've seen are to use a Walbro WT-215. Has anyone tried a different model?
I think that's the one. Change the impulse hole and drill the holes to access the screws. Linkage may need a little tweaking to get full throttle.

Trying to get one of these little saws to Termite right now. 215 is the carb you want. That and a muffler mod and they will start to go ....well go as good as a bottom barrel consumer saw goes.

Picked up the C/L 461 and TS400 this am.
MS461 has 165 comp, starts runs and oils as it should.
Needs a brake flag inner dog and bar plate.
Inner dog upper ear is broke and lower screw hole is stripped.
The clutch cover has some cracks and has seen better days.
Dont have time to look at the TS400, today.
