Good evening group, I have a model 17 that when I put the inline spark tester on it it has spark but when I put the plug on it doesn't, I'm confused! I cleaned the points and readjusted to .015" and hit the flywheel and coil with sandpaper. Only thing I'm not sure of is the condenser. I've tried with 2 new plugs and the one from my super wiz 66 that I know works.
A couple other things- - Make sure the grounds are good and clean - Disconnect the kill switch. It may be partially grounding out and reducing the voltage. If no change you can safely assume thats not the issue - Inspect all wiring to make sure its not grounding out - Check flywheel magnets, they can be damaged and lose magnetism
Chainsaws: Super 2 (3), CS-40 20", Super EZ Auto 16", XL-12 20", XL-AO 20", Super XL-AO 20", XL-500 24", 330 20", C-91 27", 707-G 36"
Well I checked everything but my meter isn't gonna cut it for this application. 1) My lead wire is rotted so I'll need one. 2) Not getting a reading from the condenser, but my meter isn't designed for it. 3) My coil is very soft and pliable but I can get a reading from the screw to the opposite side.(Not sure of the technical jargon)
Not sure where I should post looking for the wire but feebay has a NOS FG-1338 for $17😱

So I've noticed that I'm going to need a new coil for my 17! I replaced the wire and now it won't even register anything, the Repco coil is extremely soft and torn up. Is there any saws that have a similar coil?
