I picked up a well used Wright c-50 chainsaw and finally took a few minutes today to look it over.

No spark at all, so after figuring out the flywheel nut was left handed, I did the needed points cleaning and whatnot.

Now that I have a good, hot spark... The carb seems to be doing the "blow-n-suck" routine.

Does anyone have any info on wright chain saw carbs... Specifically, exploded views or things not to do.

This one is not mine, but a much cleaner version of what I was looking at. Forgot the camera in the house.

My muffler is a little different, but that's the only visible difference

If any two-stroke engine is doing a suck-and-blow, it could be a bad reed valve.  Pull the carb off and check the reed.  Also make sure the muffler is not plugged with carbon from too rich of a mixture.

I was brave enough to pull the muffler... It's less of a muffler and more of a small resonance chamber, and it was clear.

I am currently out of carb cleaner and I will pick some up Monday or Tuesday. Hopefully mid week, I can get a few minutes to work on it.

Rebuild kits are available for the Carter ND carb, if all else fails it might be worth a punt.
