Points in the red label Dayton saws.  Electronic in at least some of the newer black label saws that I've seen. 
-Aaron

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

Yup,  Nailed one off evilbay a while ago.  Runner but I haven't even messed with it since I got the pile of Stihl & Echo.

Mine's a red labeled version like the saw in Carl's pic.  Has the integrated throttle lock/kill switch/comp release thumb button (as would a green S245SA from that time period).  The black label saws (and late 245SA's) have a thumb rocker throttle lock (single purpose), a toggle kill switch on the cylinder shield, and a button type comp release valve over the muffler.  Those are the saws that are more likely to have a solid state ignition.

Yup, points on this one.

Likely I'll have to service them after his bath water dries.

I worked on a lot points types years ago.

The biggest bane was the varnish of the coil and the wax of the condenser. The varnish of the coil would deteriorate from moisture and the condensers seemed to dry up?

Points would get oil on them and it would foul the points electrically.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...

Only coils I've had real trouble with are the Bendix-Scintilla on Mall and Remington.  Plastic has gone to crap and moisture coroaded the .003" dia winding.
