Customer Question

I have a gas powered chainsaw (Partner - made in europe but no longer sold in the US). It is similar to this one sold in australia http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/McCulloch-35cm-36CC-Chainsaw-Black-/221612285603. Anyway, I was running great all morning. However, after I took a break to refill the gas and oil it would not start again. I tried giving it different levels of choke/fast idle lever but to no avail. I also cleaned the air filter and confirmed that the fuel filter is clean. Any ideas as to get it to run again?

With plug out, see if it has spark. If it has, put some fuel direct into the spark plug hole.
