Thought I would move this to this section, its sort of a continuance from a previous thread but that thread has led me to another question. The coil I got from Parrish Implement I think just may work but the resistance measures higher. My original coil off of the C-72 measures 8.2K which from what I have read on other posts is good. The new coil measures 9.5K, is that going to be too high or will that work? I also finally got a spark out of the old C-72 today. The coil wire and the kill switch wire were both culprits I think. The coil wire was deteriorated badly and was glued into the coil. I pulled that out of the coil completely and cleaned out best I could where the new one goes. I used a drill bit the size of the hole in the coil and rotated it with my fingers to dig out the old wire and glue. I then took a small flat screw driver and did the final scraping at the bottom until I could see the shiny laminations inside. I installed the new coil wire (bought from leon's) and everything tested good. I will get some glue or epoxy over the weekend to hold the new wire in place. Before removing the old one though I did find several bad spots that I didn't see before. It was likely grounding under the carburetor housing up top to the jug and then again behind the flywheel. I also think the cut off switch could have been grounding behind the flywheel as well although I couldn't confirm. I taped these spots up did a rough install of everything pulled the rope and I did get a spark from the bare plug wire on the end. Also are the new cut off switches I see on ebay compatible with the Homelites? Anyway I have a little more hope at this point than I had before, slowly getting there.
