There is no spark coming from the distibutor cap but there is spark coming from the coil.

if you have spark coming from the end of the coil wire and none coming from the cap you need to replace the rotor bug.

No spark on homelite 330 chainsaw. wire on on\off switch broke. thought to be ground wire. attached to block, still no spark switch in either direction.

The switch grounds the coil and kills the spark. Make sure you dont have a rub through on the wire coming from the coil. Better yet disconnect the coil wire. If this works you will have spark but wont be able to shut it down. Verify good spark, then repair the wire.

Hope this helps, Matt

Hi, I have an XL-12 that I bought new in 1971. It runs great, lots of power I am not one to look for trouble, I am curious how I might determine if the saw has points and condenser ignition or solid...

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.

Have a look at the coil and its supply lead, standard it has a 9v coil and a resistor wire in the harness, this gives trouble ar resistor wire is odd and will not solder or weld and its expansion when hot loosens crimps! If you put 12 volts into a 9v coil it overwhelms (magneticly) the windings and gives a poor spark, also burns the points.

Homelite ut08107 will not fire. no spark at plug.

It may be the coil if there is not any spark. Or a wire could off at the coil. One more thing it could be is the spark plug wire may have came loose from the coil. These a few thing to check.
