Stihl 55R bushwacker

Richie280May 30, 2013

My weed wacker wont start. Is there a way to check the magneto to see if I am getting spark. I pulled the cord with the spark plug removed from engine but connected to wire, but couldn't see any spark. Could the plug be bad?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Did you have plug's metal grounded to metal on the wacker? Or purchase a cheap in-line spark tester at Harbor Freight, Auto Stores, Etc (less than 7.00).
