I have to get a new piston and cylinder for my Ms 310 because of that. Went from needing a simple oil line replacement to something much worse. Apply oil, try to back it off with a socket on the fly wheel. Damage is likely.

Well Rats!!!-Maybe pull the muffler and you could see the problem to free it. Good luck and welcome to the site-David
I agree with take the muffler off

If u have some rope broke of in the muff good time to get it off and look
At it!! If u start it it could have reversion and suck it back in if u think u got the rope out,, could be bad,, did the rope thing once to,, never again

Get a stop and or impact only,, may have a few disagree on that but been slamming saws apart for a while like that,, no issues

Like I said way back, got to burn the rope. May have to got in on the charge port side with the flame. Also to be safe, cover back side of saw with a big wet towel so nothing catches on fire, gas fumes, etc...
