the vent hose coming out of the gas tank, underneath the air filter cover, They are supposed to have a small threaded plug screwed into the hose until it is about eighth inch below the end of the hose. Sometimes the threaded plug comes out. Or the vent hose may be split/cracked. Assume it does this when the tank is NOT empty. The vent hose or the internal gas hose are about the only reasons I have seen that they will not run on their side.

That's what I was thinking. Not trying to be lazy without investigating. But, with the holiday stuff going on he just dropped it off. My BIL is not too mechanical and said the guy told him a piston or something was burned up. I know that doesnt sound right if it starts and runs upright. I love Stihl's and I also love proving someones a crook or an idiot, so, I can't wait to dive in.

And that little vent hose with the threaded plug that 2X4 mentioned is an off the shelf item at a good Stihl repair shop. I had to replace the one on my 039 a few weeks ago.
