chain saw not firing
I bought a used Mastercraft chain saw (2.3 cu.in..... 38cc) model 54-5663-4 last year and decided to fire it up this spring. It didn't even fire. I changed the plug, and it saw that it was sparking, but no fuel to plug. The line to the carburetor was fine, no gas appeared to be going to it; so I decided to pull it see what's what. At this point I should tell you that I really don't know much about engines, but what I saw made me scratch my head. There was a plate over the bottom of the carburetor (Walbro) and the carburetor appeared to lead directly to the crank shaft. Am I missing something? Shouldn't the carburetor be open, and lead into the cyclinder?
