I've inherited a Mcculloch Chainsaw and it starts right up cold. Simply will not start hot, so I have either to gas/oil it up while running or wait 30-40 minutes or so for it to cool down...then it starts right up again.

Ideas?

I second Nick's diagnosis. Run the engine until it heats up and quits. Then, check for spark when you try to start it.
