Question about Garden
Have to coax to get started, then it is jittery at that. It shots out white smoke from exhaust. Can not get it to start now. New spark plug, clean gas, suspect it is the coil, not sure. Where can I find a part list and order parts to fix myself.

I suspect carb. trouble. Is the compression OK? Look at the spark plug after trying to start it. If it is wet, you are getting too much fuel. The white smoke indicates that. You may need to overhaul the carb.
Go on the Stihl site and customer service for information.
