Stihl 028 No Start

Posted by ms24 CT (My Page) on

My Stihl 028 won't start. It ran fine last month. So far, the following has been tried:
1. I've replaced the coil and plug. There is a strong spark.
2. I sprayed fuel into the carb.
3. I've pulled the kill wire.
4. I checked the flywheel key. It is fine.
5. I tried new fuel.

The saw won't even sputter. The piston is moving up and down as it should. I can't figure it out. With spark and fuel, it should do something. Any ideas?
