Most likely to be found under the removable casing at the top of the chainsaw. The spark plug will have a black rubber spark plug boot which will identify its location. Remove the spark plug wire/boot to access the spark plug. The boot should just pull off. The spark plug will need the correct size socket to remove it.

Try fresh gas with correct oil mixture. Carb might need cleaning and adjustment. Also try leaving chock closed and see if it runs longer before dieing...if it does, it indicates that it's not getting enough gas which could be solved with the carb cleaning and adjustment.

1) Check the oil holes in the bar to make sure they are not plugged. The bar can be mounted either upside down, or right side up, so make sure to check both sides.
2) With the bar removed, start the saw and watch for oil to come out of the side of the case/body.
3) If no oil is coming out the side of the saw, inspect the oil pump worm gear and drive spring. The spring is driven by the chain sprocket/drum. The clutch will need to be removed to inspect.
clutch removal as follows
Outboard drums (drums on the outside of the clutch) are held on by a nut or e-clip.
Inboard drums are held on by the clutch which is threaded onto the crankshaft. And there is the challange.
***NOTE all chain saw clutches have LEFT hand threads, so, rightey loosey, lefty tightey. (just backwards from everything else)
*** NOTE #2: DO NOT USE AN IMPACT GUN
this will most certainly shear the flywheel key or damage the flywheel !!!!! (after 35 years, you can ask me how I know that, LOL)
1) Use a piston stop to hold piston from moving: THIS IS A MUST !!!
Ok, so you do not have one, let's make one.
a) remove the spark plug
b) insert a piece of recoil rope into the cylinder hole, leaving a tail to remove it by. (rope, large shoe string, anything that is soft, that is aprox 1/4 to 5/16 in diameter to place into the spark plug hole to help the piston to stop it's travel by filling up the empty space. Just make sure you can remove it later)
c) secure the saw (extra set of hands may be needed) and with a suitable wrench on the clutch center, rotate the clutch to the right until piston comes to a stop. With a hammer, tap the wrench to aid in rotation. This can be very difficult, and may take several taps.
d) after removed, inspect and grease the drum bearing before re-assemlby.
e) upon re-assembly of clutch, tighten by hand only, NO hammer required. The force of the chain will tighten the clutch.
f) remove the rope, and re-install the spark plug.
