You might try a new plug just for the fun of it, you never know.

Thanks XP and Old 2......will check out chainsawr's site for parts.

Still scratching my head about this coil issue.

How so?  Because of the bad Fleabay part?

i'm an old fart but I can't get used to the idea of squirting fuel on an air cleaner instead of in the carburetor or in the cylinder and unless it's a brand-new air cleaner Im just thinking about debri

Hi! I know the topic is quite old but given that I have the exact same problem i took my chances. Did you solve the problem?

Thank you very much!

This is an old thread but for anyone who comes across it I just wanted to throw in this thought because I would bet a nickel it may be a solution. CHECK THE PLUG! If it is not a resistor plug, find a resistor plug and change it. The is a classic sign. Resistor plugs will have an "R" somewhere in the part number. It's a simple 2 minute $4.00 thing to check. Good Luck, Tom
