Next would be clean and rebuild kit the carb OR buy a new carb. They cost ~$10 online and have Hi & Lo screws to adjust.
Husky: 372xt, 272xp, 61, 55 (x3)...Poulan: 315, 4218 (x3), 2375, 2150, 2055, 2000 (x3)...Stihl 011AVT...Homelite XL...Saws come in broken, get fixed or parted, find new homes

Before you get too deep into the carb, take a look at the impulse line running from the engine to the back side of the carb mount. That impulse is what causes the carb to pump fuel when you are not in the choke position. It may be cracked or have simply come off at either end.
