Question about Garden
The ignition switch on a chainsaw operates on a ground. When the switch is "on" the coil is not grounded out, and the magneto can supply power to the coil. When it is "off" the coil is grounded, and no power gets to the coil. If you are checking for spark you can bypass the switch by removing the wire to the coil. It may just be a bad switch. A two stroke motor uses magnets to power the coil through the magneto. If the switch is grounding out there may be no spark!
