I recently put a big bore piston and jug on my 046. The saw ran for a few tanks and died. I pulled it apart today and the piston was heavily scored on the muffler side only. I am told that is what it looks like if it burnt too lean. I am going to keep the jug and replace the piston. I was told that I should go get some muriatic acid from the hardware store and clean the inside of the jug with it and then use a fine grained wet/dry sand paper to finish it off. Does this sound right? Any tips on getting the clip out that holds the piston on? I used my dremmel too last time and just cut it.
