Question about Stihl Garden
Certain models of Stihl equipment have a vented fuel tanks, ive recently had 2 in for repair with similar symptoms, but also showed signs of fuel soaked air filter. The fuel tank vents have a delicate little valve in them which have a tendency to perish/break causing fuel to flow back up the breather pipe.
They were stored hanging on a rack with the engines down, which i done suppose helps. I'd advise to stoe flat or if hanging,'engine's up'.

either at carb gasket , manifold block or intake boot or impulse hose or base gasket or crankcase seals particularly if carby is good and compression and spark are good and muffler is clear and fuel lines and breather and fuel filter are all ok
symptoms of air leak are - hard to start, inconsistant idle
ineffective carb adjustments - stalling , no power , rough running- over revving
this might pay to have done at local service shop unless you have poper tools to block off ports and pressure and vacuum test unit ?
cheers paul46 hope it helps
