sure sounds like you did it all. Was the Plug wet with gas when you took it out to fuel it directly? I would take the plug back out, blow out or let the Cylinder totally dry. Then spray a bit of Starter fluid in the carb and see if you get life. Old gas left in a saw is a Carburetor killer. The paper components in these carbs can not stand the new 10% ethanol gas.
The carburettor is getting too hot and fuel is being blocked from feeding into the engine. Make sure that the carburettor is clean and has adequate cooling while the engine is running. If you still have problems withs starting, blow the carburettor cool or use a damp cloth to cool it if starting is a problem.
The saw is a 41, as standard it ran a 15" bar and chain, in the UK it ran a .325 pitch, however in the US, it ran a 3/8 pitch chain, as you should change the sprocket if fitting a new chain, i would put it on .325 if it is not already, the sprocket is part no. 530069342, the 15" chain is 501840664, and the guide bar is 508926164 these are .325 pitch 050 gauge and 64 drive links, this combination will cut much faster than the 3/8 low profile combination.
The fuel may have been replaced, but is the fuel filter clean or is the fuel line cracked? Even though you cleaned the spark plug, did you check to see if it has a spark? If not, maybe a new spark plug or check the wire to make sure there is nothing blocking where the wire and spark plug connect. Is the air filter clean? Just a few more things to check out...
Remove the spark plug and test for spark. If ok, try some starting fluid in the plug hole, install the plug, and try to start. If it runs a short time, it is not getting fuel. Check fuel lines including inside the tank. Clean or replace the air filter. If this saw is fairly old, the carburetor probably needs a re-kit and cleaning. Does it have good compression? Check the muffler for plugging. Make sure the fuel/oil mix is fresh. Good luck!
