Looking at the fleaBay picture and Man of Stihl's picture

Looks like the red wire goes from the source trigger to the coil.

The blue wire goes from the source trigger to the shut off switch.  Cannot see the wire on the other side of the switch that goes to a screw on the metal chassis?

Okie dokie ,here ya go .Reference 281 .With the saw laying bar down recoil cover off .The left side of the coil has a blue wire going to the kill switch .Right side red wire which goes to the trigger unit .The wires are routed from the air box up around the cover under the recoil top side .You pull the recoil off it has another shrouding piece over the flywheel which is where the wires attach .

Because of the difference from Stihl to Husqvarna with the shock mounts the air box appears to pivot with the engine . As far I know it needs no ground bonding jumper as does Stihl with a set up like that .The trigger unit doesn't have a ground bonding jumper either .

Ok, I've got it figured out. The original owner owner had jumped the blue wire directly to the trigger.
Thanks for everyone's help. I hope to repay you all with some help in the future!

This is a great sight!

 Thanks again,
John

Although I didn't run a continuity test I assume the two terminal points on the coil are common to one another .

As such electrically it would not make a diff which wire went where .In fact even a wire to the trigger then to the kill switch would have the same effect .
