Title: p41 ignition
Post by: blazen81 on October 24, 2014, 02:34:56 pm
I have a damn near perfect shape p41 but no spark! Does anyone have any idea were to get ignition parts or does anyone have one for sale that runs ?

Check the basics like a ground wire shorting or bad plug wire/plug first
 Banta saw and others sell an aftermarket ignition kit for a lot of the older partners. I believe the conversion works with some but not all p41/41s saws.

I checked wires for ohms seems to be fine but I am no electrician.  Cleaned all contact points grounds, flywheel and ignition. I think these saws are badass and would love to get it out cutting wood! thanks for any help

Is your coil a two part type?

As far as I can tell if it's a two piece the "condenser coil" p/n is phelon # 11760 431307.  I'd suspect that before the coil failing

the ignition is in fact a two part, magnetic pickup and coil! I called the chainsaw guy in cannoyville, he said it's usually the pickup not so much the coil! This saw is in great shape with a 28" bar, I would love to get it operational again thanks for the help!

I got a new flywheel and coil about a year ago for my p41 from rottmansales.com he may have the part you need.
My saw was made in the early 80s.
