Question about Garden
When you have the plug out.Take a look down the hole.Look towards the muffler side.See if there are any scratches.I have had 2 huskeys do the same thing.Sorry to say they were blowed up.If its ok inside is the plug wet when you take it out after trying to start it?it could possibley not getting gas.Plugged fuel filter,bad fuel line.When you check the spark try hooking the plug into the wire as it is when installed.Put the plug to where its touching the cylinder.Make sure the switch is on.Pull the cord and see if it has spark.It should be bluish if its good.If not it could be a bad coil.Or maby just a loose wire.The coil could also be to dirty to work right.Its easy to take out and clean.2 alan head or torx screws.To put it back in.Leave it slightly loose and put a piece of sandpaper between the magnet and coil then tighten.Just pull the paper out and your set.Hope some of this helps.

I have never heard of a Husqvarna 261 ? however cdi systems work off speed of rotation, so you may not be cranking fast enough with your plug tester connected, if the plug has a spark when you crank the engine with the plug out, it is very unlikly there is any thing wrong with it, normaly if the unit is bad you will not get a spark at all, your problem lies either with fuel starvation, or possible worn, or part seized engine, remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston through the exhaust port, any signs of scuffing or damage, and the saw will have to come apart.
