How bad is that to do? I assume I can just seal off the old port and drill and seal an new hole for the new line. Or should I just pull the felt out and hook up a new fuel line with a filter to the old fitting? I'm not afraid to modify it a bit if I have to, I'm looking for a functioning saw not an award winning restoration.

I really haven't had the time to dig into it too much other than just a rudimentary carb cleaning and filing the tank and pulling on it for a while, I'll know more when I get a chance to work on it, maybe i'll try running a fuel line from the inlet to the carb to my mixed gas tank as it has good suction.
It's not the equipment that makes a professional, it's the operator.
