Re: Rancher 50 help needed

I went and looked in the workshop manual but didn't find anything about the switch

Looked at some parts list of saws of that era and seen the single wire on the switch. Looks like where the switch is mounted is metal and the switch shorts to the metal body to shut the chainsaw off?

Had this problem on a Stihl 042 and the area where the switch was mounted was actually isolated from the crankcase. There was a broken jumper wire that connected the handle  body to the crankcase ground.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .
