Default eager Beaver saw?

just finishing up the last of my firewood cutting, i have a 14" mculloch i use
mainly for limbing, and it started to die on me on idle, so i messed with the idle adjustment! on the saw it has high and low adjustments and also a T on another adjustment, i assume that is throttle adjustment!
Anyway I got the idle perfect, the chain stops, and engine stays running.
But now when i rev it up a few times it floods out.
I am no good when it comes to two stroke engines!
Dose anyone have any info on setting the carb other than taking it into the
shop. I have had it around 15 years, it still has allot of power.
Thanks Bill

I have several saws and I usually set the idle jet first, then set the idle speed, then set the high speed jet a little rich, i.e., with the throttle full on turn the high speed jet to get max rpm, them a 1/6 of a turn more open. That usuallt gets everything real close. Sometimes after running a saw for an hour of more you may have to reset the high speed jet.
