Jeff, which ignition setup is on the saw, the OEM or the after market? Have you tested both?

Wow the only problem it was being turned over to slow.   I guess I learned something from this thread.

Wow, me too Roger! Thanks Gregg +1!

I have the AM coil set on it. The original one is probably fine also. Talk about overthinking something. Wow .I have an echo cs-670 on the bench right next to it and it throws a a nice spark with the drill turning it about half speed. I really under estimated the multiplication of rpm's by the starter pulley. Yes,  I learned somthing too.

I laughed out loud when that plug started sparking! I dont remember if i said that it in any of my posts or not. But i remember thinking many times,  that when i finally get this figured  out,  its going to be a stupid simple little detail. And it was.
+1 to all of ya

Watch yourself when replacing the pulley, the spring under it cuts like a knife! Wear gloves and eye protection! The spring can jump out and create all kinds of problems/damage!

The last four springs I've done, I've been able to keep it in the cavity without it jumping out until I got it all put together. But I sure had trouble about four years ago. Spring jumped out three times. That one, the end had broken on the spring and I didn't have the new end made right.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...

Jim, I found a little gizmo at the hobby shop that makes those little circular ends on the springs. You basically heat up the end of the spring, slip it into a slot in the tool and twist the tool round to form the rounded end. It is not in the RC stuff, it is in the clock making supplies, I believe it is really intended for large clock springs. Whatever it works great, I will post some pictures perhaps Al can figure out how to make it on the cheap.
