    Hi Phil Thank you for responding so fast.

I will return when i have done the above and let you know ...

    Curing 2-cycle Engine Problems

    hi philI have a fs55 strimmer which won't start. It fires once through the carboretor. It all looks fine inside - no damage. New coil + new plug and not blockages as would be expected in the exhaust. Any ideas ?
