Question about Echo 30.1CC Chainsaw With a 14 In.bar and Chain
The old breaker point wire and the small wire coming off of the new ignition coil primary both go to the Positive side ot the CDI module. These same wires are grounded when the kill switch is activated to the off position. The negative side ot the CDI module goes to ground or the mounting screw of the CDI module.
If you have a short in the kill wire some where on the engine you will never see spark. Also if the negative side of the CDI module is not grounded you will never see spark. Try running a "temp jumper" from the positive side of the CDI module straight to the coil small wire. If you see spark then the wire from the kill switch most likely has a chassis short some where on the engine. (heat chaffing etc.)
Although this is a generic picture it should help you sort things out.
If you need more help just respond here and I will get back to you.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
