Not used in 10 years. Was there gas left in the tank? If so the carb is likely gummed up and may need to be taken apart and soaked in "Gunk" solvent and a new kit installed.

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

If it is a old saw it sounds like your engine seals are failing. when a engine seal fails it allows air in past the crank upsetting your fuel mixture You could try to richin the fuel mixture by turning the screw marked H anticlockwise a quarter at a time untill it runs Ps to set (h) screw to factory, screw it in til it stops then unscrew it 1 & 1/2 turns

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

Find your model, what little fuel system detail there is can be found on it. HTH

SOURCE: poulan saw wont run
Clean the muffler spark arrestor screen and check the cylinder port for carbon build-up at the upper edge. Try presetting both carburetor H and L adjustments (from lightly CW stops) 1-1/2 turns CCW each. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle wide open and adjust H CW until the engine speed increases, but still 4-stroking. Correct setting is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Allow to idle and adjust L for smoother running, yet allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed to keep the engine running, but doesn't try to move the chain. You may have to look closer at your carburetor if the above doesn't help. Go to:
for an excellent article (but poor pix) on Walbro carburetors, but related to most all 2-stroke carburetors. Hope this helps!
