i used my echo cs370 about 8 weeks ago.i burned up the chain on a juniper so i drained the tank and ran it out of gas.put a chain on it tonight and it wont start. it will sputter and run 2-3 seconds if i pour gas into the throat of the carb. i use truefuel in it so no alcohol in the gas. repaced the spark plug with no difference

My guess is....you had debris in the gas tank floating around. And when you ran it dry...it got sucked into the carb. Now it's plugged up.

That's my guess too.
