Think I found my answer here. http://chainsawrepair.createaforum.com/husqvarna/husqvarna-394/20/
Seems I need to make sure the coil is grounded well before I buy another one.

Got my hyway muffler today looks great. Do you guys think it needs another exit hole and a deflector or cut it in half and remove the innards? Also got my first meteor piston today and they are very nice looking as well. Should have the rest of the parts tomorrow to start putting it back together. Have the new crank bearings in already and the rest of the parts are washed. Carb is rebuilt and ready to go. Does anyone have any pics they would like to see while I am putting it back together for reference or knowledge?

It wouldn't hurt to open it up some. Most of them can benefit from a larger exhaust outlet if you can stand the noise.

Thinking on using the 288 deflector think it will match the best with the stock deflector. Thanks

Either braze it on or use "POP" rivets because sheet metal screws, if they get free, will spin out faster than a blink and your 288 deflector will be in the chips somewhere.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

I always weld captive nuts to the inside of the muffler and use M4 machine screws.

I've tired pop rivets and sheet metal screws and they all work loose eventually. 

I pull the captive nut into the muffler using a screw and a nut till they seat nicely. Then it will stay put while I carefully weld around the top with the tig welder. It makes for a clean install.

This one is just to hold the muffler screen which slips under the deflector that I made and welded on.

Freshened the coil ground and still no spark. Need a coil think I am going to get the one above from northwood. Have a call to chainsawr to see if he may have a used one. Now on to the muffler mod.
