    You should be asking in the Maintenance & Repair forum in the HOME & GARDEN category. This is Cars & Transportation and you can't ride a chainsaw. Duhhh.

    Bogging down usually means you are to lean in the carb settings, start with 1-1/2 turn out on both highspeed and low speed screws, low speed is the one closest to engine (idle mix). Other cause is broken/cracked/bent reed though not all engines use them. But I doubt it if engine idles.  Other cause is improper setting of fuel inlet needle did you put gasket on correct side of diaphragm? muffler Plugged up with carbon.

    Put the air filter and spark arrestor back on and try again.

    Make sure the gas is fresh. You probably still have a plugged passage in the carb.
