Question about Garden
I have spark and gas, will not fire
Try putting another new spark plug in it. If that does not work then turn air fuel mixture screw on the carb. all the way to the right then about one half turn counter clockwise and make sure the on/off switch is in the on position. If the saw has been sitting for awhile the carb. may have to be cleaned out. If still no response then take the saw inside and try to warm it to room temp. If still not starting spray a little bit of starter fluid in the intake or wd40. Then see if it will fire up.

Spray a little starter fluid down the carburator . It is starts then is is a fuel problem. Most likely a gummed up carburator. Remove and clean .

It's your ignition, which you can take that stuff apart on the left hand side of the saw under the recoil. I have 2 of these, & you can get the parts. Maybe its just the magneto gap adjustment, which is like a business card or newspaper width gap. I would check that first. Hope this helps you, Rick

Has the unit been stored or sitting unused for over a month? If so Check carburetor diaphragms.

She has points and most likely a condenser.
Chain Saw Collectors Corner
I'd try that site for any help or parts for this Grand Old Lady.
I did a search for "Remington SL4" and found quite a few threads here:

Please be kind to her. HTH

Try to squirt a little gas in the carb and see if it pops or tries to run for a short time. The diaphram in the carb is probably old and hard. That would be the first place I would look.
