Immediately after it stalls do this:
Ignition Coil Test
You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You don’t have to bend up the electrode.
If spark good:
When it begins to stall loosen fuel cap if that fixes it fuel vent problem.
If spark and vent good it is most likely a fuel delivery problem. Check the fuel filter on the free end of a hose in fuel tank (manufacturer recommends an annual replacement). Check all fuel delivery lines especially at fittings and bends for cracks and holes. If those are good then the likely cause is internal parts of the carburetor.
Was this saw perhaps operated without oil mixed with the fuel?
· Remove the spark plug wire and plug.
· Remove the muffler, hold a light at the plug hole and inspect the cylinder through the exhaust port. Is it smooth and shiny or does it appear speckled with dull gray spots or smears?
· Pull the starter slowly, inspect the piston as it rises and falls. Is it a dull gray without scratches and gouges?
· Hold the light at the exhaust port and inspect the cylinder, above the exhaust port, through the spark plug hole. Is it shiny and smooth or speckled with gray spots or smears?
Any spots or smears on the cylinder or deep scratches and gouges in the piston indicate the saw was operated in a lean condition. Repair of this on a home owner quality saw often exceeds replacement cost. A repair estimate by the independent saw shop should be considered. HTH
This will even work on a Chinese McCulloch 3416. If this is a Mac it may be very difficult to find a repair shop willing to repair it.

Handle, Chassis, & Bar Assembly
Item 15, $3.09
Maybe a little cross threaded or swolen from contact with fuel.
Please verify this is your fuel cap. HTH

Recoil Spring Rewind
I invert and secure the housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection, both hands and no women around work area!). I'm right handed so I tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely inserted. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension for it to retract properly.
If you're lucky you can pull the cord out enough for a pretension then slightly raise and add the withdrawn cord to the spool. HTH

Hook the spring at the inner mount, then wind the spring CCW until the spool assembly can be attached to the outer spring, then continue to wind the spool until the spring is about half-tight or so. It must be able to wind about three or four turns more without becoming 'bound' which would lock the spool and not permit return of the cord. When the spring is wound, wedge it so that the cord can be attached, the work the cord around the spool so that the outer end will only project beyond the cord port a little way. Pull the cord out to make sure that the spring doesn't bind at full extension, the apply locking pliers to the cord to be able to attach the handle. Melt the cord ends to prevent the knots from pulling out. Hope this helps!
