    Like I said the Husky 61 popped and quit ,not a loud pop
    I was cutting, checked gas ,pretty much empty, filled it up , took a few pulls to start, started cutting , it did it again, started it up 3 more times ,ran 3-4 minutes let it idle and it just quit each time but no more popping.
    I haven't looked at air filter or any thing yet .
    What do ya think the problem is ;?

    Not sure - especially about the 'pop' - any chance it's overheating? Cooling fins real dirty or running lean? Might be a fuel issue since it will start but die quickly - I'd at least check fuel related fixes. Ignition issue - coil or plug going bad? Just some guesses - smarter people will have other suggestions! Good luck! Cheers!

    Tank breather? Try opening the tank immediately after it quits, and listen as you unscrew the cap. Does it pull air? Was the tank under vacuum?

    When the tank was empty I could here air as I opened it, opened it again after it ran a little with full tank ,no air.
    Adjusted carb a few days ago, since then it idles fast until it warms up
    Plug is 2 months old

    Well, I'm no chainsaw mechanic, but I do troubleshoot complex systems for a living. When there's a new type of failure, look at recent history.

    Kinda sounds like it is leaning out.
