Thank you Al Smith. I pulled the flywheel and the points were indeed the problem. They were simply stuck open from sitting. I lubed, (a little PB Blaster to free them up) cleaned and gaped them. I have a good spark now. Put a shot of gas down the carb and it even putted a bit. Next up is cleaning the carb and fuel tank. Then see if it will run. Good thing I pulled the specs on it. Fuel mix is 20:1. I'd have guessed 40:1 and burned it up. Well who knows, maybe I'll end up with a working chainsaw. Thanks again  :)
