Customer Question

I have a Stihl FS87 strimmer. It seems that the fuel is not getting to the spark plug. (It ran briefly when I put fuel into the spark plug hole). I have also cranked it hard and the plug remains dry, when normally it would have flooded. The filter in the tank seems clean ... and there is plenty of fuel in the tank.
