The 029/ms290 coil is a great idea, didn't know it could be used.
Am  I correct,  that the part # is 0000-400-1300 ?

I don't like the aftermarket, but then I sell the oem ones.  Also, another problem with the points, is that you don't have the special tool.

Say what? Stihl in their infinite wisdom made a set of points you need some high priced unobtainable tool to set points .Doesn't surprise me in the least .Good grief !

Yes, it is a cam that fits on the crank, , for those that are not familiar.  On the old 030,031,032, some of the flywheels had 2 little windows that you could
access the points, but some didn't, requiring the dealers to buy both little cams.  They look almost identical, except a single digit number, which I don't
remember which cam is which.
    About 10 years ago, I called Bryan equipment's tech line to ask him how I could tell which cam was which, the kid on the phone had no idea what I
was talking about.  He kept suggesting that I sell the guy a new saw.

Well then its a no brainer to replace the coil and be done with it.  No pulling the flywheel , no flywheel puller, no points tool= new coil= running saw .
The saw looks like it has  been lightly used , clean , a few chips on the bottom. New clutch drum to change over to 3/8 chain , bar and coil less than $150  for an almost new saw.

You will have to go with a rim sprocket setup to switch to a 3/8, I don't know if you will like it, or if it would be worth it.

I ran some sand paper through the points during the Daytona rain delay . Spark is still the same , orange /pink spark that won't jump more than 1/8th ". A friend has an 028  parts saw that has great spark. I'll get that tomorrow and try it.
