Clean the mounts, the places where the bolts hold the module and coil to the chassis.  Also, make sure that the wires that connect the module to the coil are not corroded.  Go over the places with a piece of emory cloth to remove all corrosion.

Those modules on the EVL series are the weak spot.  Tough to source out used ones and costly considering the potential for failure.  I might suggest baking the module at 225-250 for 1-2 hrs.  Several folks, myself included, revived weak or sporadic spark on the infamous blue Prestolite modules on some of the Homelites.  I tried it on my 550 EVL module but only baked it for a short time.  I happened to find a healthy ignition in the interim so swapped it out.  The baking did temporarily bring the spark back but I likely did not heat it for nearly long enough. 

Good luck, those 750 Echos pull like a locomotive and ride like a Cadillac.

There is a 80 being parted out on bay.  The harder to find clutch cover etc listed. Maybe the stuff you need.  Good seller. I buy chain from him some times.

Im sorry the mount and contact cleaning didnt help.  Other than ebay, maybe call Echo Inc and ask them for a list of their older dealers, or ask their parts department if they have a work around from a different unit.  Then you can get on the phone and try to find that coil.  Usually the module is ok, its the coil that shorts.

Here is a guy in the UK that shows the module part number in stock, maybe they have the coil as well?
