Fuel, Chain saws are the most pickiest when it comes to fuel, I normally buy the Premixed Fuel already made for me at lowes they have a 40:1 and a 50:1 ratio mixes. I would try that.

Never heard of a "muffler safety shut off". The chain brake handle sits above the muffler, could this be the safety part you are looking for?

The 3 things needed for an engine to run:
1. Compression (Cylinder, Piston, rings, gaskets)
2. Ignition (Spark plug, ignition module/coil)
3. Fuel (Fuel lines, Carburetor, gaskets, bad fuel)

More than Likely I would start by checking fuel related since that is usually the biggest offender (fuel lines broken/dry rotted, bad carb.)

The lines are usually a tight fit in the fuel tank. This prevents leaks. They must be pulled out of the tank (one at a time) then cut the new lines end in a "v" pattern, this will allow you to push the new line through the tank. Long needle nose pliers are needed too.

Your best solution is to tip the engine up-side-down and shake the object out of the plug hole. You really don't want to pull the crank and piston which has rings, that will need to be properly reinstalled with a ring compression tool, as well as the crank and connecting rod bearings. Big job.

Did you set the carb up after you installed the carb kit?

There is no fixed carburetor setting on these engines, just two screws to adjust low-end and high-end operation. Special tool may be required, there are about a half-dozen screw head standards. Check eBay for tool. Get the engine to run and idle fast (idle adjust) so it doesn't stall, adjust low-end screw so that engine doesn't hesitate or sputter when accelerated. Adjust high-end screw to run fast and smooth on full throtle. Readjust idle to normal.

Fuel lines are generally fixed by replacement of the fuel line because the rubber it is made of deteriorates from age and alcohol contained in gas. Before you begin, make a mental note or take a picture of how the fuel line runs from the tank to the carburetor so you will be able to put the replacement in the same position.
On most chainsaws you need to take some wire, make a u-shaped end, which will be used to grab the fuel filter in the fuel tank. Drain the fuel in the tank. Disconnect the fuel line from the carburetor. Generally there are two lines on the carburetor, one for fuel, the other line creates suction used to pump fuel and is connected to the motor, not the fuel tank . Just disconnect the fuel line, it is usually on the side of the carburetor and will leak gas when disconnected. Once this is done, using the wire, gently grab and pull the filter towards the filler opening and using needle nose pliers grab the fuel line above the filter and pull. The problem you may have, is if the fuel line is in bad shape it will break, But once you have the filter off the fuel line, the fuel line can be pulled out from either the inside of the tank or from where it comes out of the tank and goes to the carburetor. Once it is removed you are ready to put the new fuel line in.
It is best to put the fuel filter on the fuel line next. It easier than trying to put it on inside of fuel tank going out. Spray some WD40 or equivalent, on the outside of the gas line, to help the line squeeze through the whole in the back of the tank, which it will have the go through. From the outside of the tank, where the fuel line comes out, fish some wire inside the tank and put the fuel line on the end of it, making sure not to pierce or damage the fuel line. If needed a piece of black tape will hold the wire better and help fit the line through outside hole. Once the fuel line is on the wire, pull it through carefully out the other side of the tank. It is best to use your fingers to pull the line through the outside hole, it makes it less likely the line will get torn or overstretched as line goes through the hole because of the extra rubber used on the line to seal the tank from inside and outside. Once the line is pulled through and seated, run the other end to the carburetor and you are done.

Hi brian
You will need to drain all the fuel from the tank.
Then if you have a long nose pliers or a hemostat remove the fuel filter.
You will need to trim the fuel line to a point and insert it into the fuel tank and keep inserting till the fuel line can be retreived and install the new filter on the line, slowly pull the fuel filter back into the fuel tank,leaving some slack in the line to not kink the line.
Please take time to rate me

Your best bet is to turn them all the way in and go one and a half turns out on both sides. Do not go less then a whole turn. You can ruin you motor.

If you have good fuel and a good spark it may be a mechanical issue, remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston face through the open exhaust port, any signs of damage or scuffing and it will need to come aprt to assess the damage, if all looks good it may be a crank seal leaking, the 36 was prone to blowing the seal behind the flywheel, also check the flywheel key in the flywheel has not sheared knocking the ignition timing out.

Take off your chain guard, should be 2 bolts holding the chain bar in place. Then make sure there isnt another bolt or screw you missed, pop off cover put chain on, replace chain guard and tighten chain. It should be that simple
