Stihl 018 Will not start
« on: March 17, 2014, 06:12:16 PM »
Hi there

I have a Old Stihl Chainsaw , I can not get it to start , good spark , but everytime I try to start it , the plug gets wet , that is with and without using the choke , it seems to have good compression ,  but if I pull it over slowly , I can here hissing coming out of the carb inlet , is there some sort of reed valve for these 2 stroke engines ! .

Hi there

OK got it started , I put a little oil in cylinder and it started up straight away , so I think it will need a set of rings at least , will strip it down and see what condition everything is , thanks for your help .
