You mean a pressure switch, not regulator.

Fill it up with the highest octane fuel you can find, and run it like normal.
That is your best option. Run it down low again and refill as normal.

So was I, in the 3/4" blade I think the coarsest pitch I could get was a 4/6 vari-

Also go with a saw that you can get a wider blade on. The wider the blade the
