Gas leak, when I turn the saw over (I know, I know, don't turn it over!) I pulled out the combination grommet/breather line/fuel line, and can't find any cracks in the likely places, just wondered if there is something I am missing, here. I plan on picking up a new fuel line kit, anyway, but just wondered if it could be anything else. The saw ran fine, just leaks gas.

there used to be a threaded steel, very small, plug screwed inside the vent hose. Maybe it worked its way out or the line broke off below it. Is the gas coming out the top of the vent hose? That would be normal if the plug were missing.

Nah, it's there. Leak seems to be coming from the grommet area, when you roll the saw into the felling position, leak starts, gets worse, if you hold the saw upside-down. Might be cause the tank has ben dry, for a couple-4 months.
