SOURCE: how to check the spark plug is ok on a McCULLOCH

Chain saws are still two-cycle engines (gas and oil mix) and they foul the spark plug pretty rapidly if not in perfect tune. Remove the spark plug and re-attach the wire and let the plug contact any metal part such as the cylinder head. Make sure the gas petcock is off and the start switch is on. Pull on the recoil starter and see if you have a spark jumping from the center electrode of the plug to the outer electrode of the plug. Clean and re-gap the plug and try it again. If no spark, the center electrode could be broken up inside the ceramic insulator and you can't see it. Try a new plug. If still no spark, another component of the simple electrical system could be bad. If your saw has a capacitor, change that out also. Sometimes the small coil that rides very close to the magnets on the flywheel comes out of adjustment. Proper gap for that is a small piece cut from a cereal box and placed between the coil and flywheel while re-tightening the coil bolts. Do not let the coil scrape on the flywheel. If any of this has helped, please rate accordingly. Good luck.

I have a 14" Mcculloch


All modern chainsaws have electronic ignition, you should first try diss connecting the wire to the ignition switch, to rule out a fault with the switch, if still no spark check the gap between the the unit and the flywheel, this shouls be 0.3mm, if still no spark it will be a replacment ignition unit.

I am afraid if it has no spark, then itis going to be a replacement ignition unit, it is a solid state electronic unit, so it is not servicable, to get to the ignition unit you need to remove the tube and the front housing, the unit is then screwed to the side of the cylinder.

I believe that this machine uses solid state ignition, but has two elements--one is a trigger/charger coil and the other is the ignition coil. Like you said, if it ain't broke---. Parts for this are spendy--hope it outlasts the engine.

I am trying to obtain a copy of McCulloch 338 Chainsaw Manual


McCulloch Manuals
Illustrated Parts Lists: (IPLs) are fairly simple, on the underside of McCulloch saws is a black and yellow tag; the upper number (“Power Mac 320” 600021H) is the model, below it a serial number (11-18555). These 2 numbers are combined to create an IPL number (“Power Mac 320” IPL number = 11-600021H). The IPL number can be used to find the correct IPL for every McCulloch parts supplier I have found. If the parts supplier only list part numbers the proper IPL is the source for the part number.
Operators Manuals: are much more difficult. I have dialed this number many times (Contact Us - All McCulloch Products 1 (800) 521-8559) and have yet to get a satisfactory response. Please try this! If enough of us try they will fix it! If unsuccessful with McCulloch try here:
Beg for manuals thread (ArboristSite - free to join). Please use the search function first, it has probably been asked and answered.

Husqvarna chainsaw no spark


Ignition systems on newer saws are a solid state all-in-one package. Disconnect the kill switch wire from the ignition pack to make sure that the switch isn't broken. Use a fresh spark plug to check spark with. An old one that is black inside is likely shorted. If still no spark, replace the ignition module. Use a piece of card stock to set the flywheel magnets to module gap, then tighten screws
