Question about Stihl 16" Chainsaw Bar Chain Saw 018 025 Ms 180 250

1 Answer

Hi I am looking at a Stihl MS 180 C Chainsaw for a friend. He said it was working fine then he turned it off for a while and when he came back to start it, it would not start and it hasn't since. I removed the spark and checked spark. It seems to have a small yellow spark. Is this normal? I have tried pouring a small amount of fuel into the carby opening but that hasn't worked either. Any ideas? Is there a known common problem with these units? Thanks Greg
