Question about Garden
Have you checked for an air filter? It needs oxygen to operate. There mmay be a filter in the gas line and if it's clogged it can't get enough fuel once it starts.

sounds like your clunk has come free from fuel line or it is stuck at top of fuel tank. i would empty tank and see if clunk is free by giving the saw a good shake if you cant here the rattel of the clunk you have found the problem PS clunk is a weight attached to the end of your fuel line in tank it makes the line stay at the bottom of the tank

The plugged vent gets my vote. Loosen the fuel cap when it starts to starve.

It must have spark, fuel and compression to run. Your task is to figure out which is missing.
Sometimes electrical components quit operating once beyond a certain temperature. Does it always start cold and become tempermental when warm?
IMO most hard start problems on a chainsaw with a good fuel delivery system are flooded.

Is this your saw?

If this grand old lady were mine I would part with a few $(40±) for a tune up and and maybe an additional $20 if carburetor needs rebuild at my friendly neighborhood Stihl dealer. They perform pressure tests most homeowners cannot. An undetected air leak can destroy your saw. She deserves better.

Remove, clean and reinstall the muffler and spark arrestor, if no better the "L" needle may need adjustment.
