I do not think that the air filter had anything to do with this particular problem.
I remember trying several times to start it without the air filter on, so cleaning the air filter did not fix this problem.
There was apparently a "foreign object" of some size and shape that was in a place that it should not have been.

Wish I knew.

Maybe I am going to have to invest in an air compressor.

Me too, just to know what happened.   

Just like that 371 that would pop and not start. That was a weird one too.

I don't think an air compressor would help with an internal problem.

I still wish I knew what exactly was wrong with mine, I ran the saw for 2 tanks at 8000 rpms, then magically disappears.
Maybe something in the carb plugging a jet, I dunno.
