Early Stihl 028 AV
« on: March 08, 2014, 03:32:45 pm »
I have one of these in for repair. It has a bad ground wire that runs to the on/off switch. The saw uses the early type SEM electronic ignition. The coil has the wire molded in and is not replaceable as far as I can see. Does not use the spade connector like later versions.

A used coil of this type is worth more than the saw IMHO.

If anyone knows of another coil that will work without having to change the flywheel let me know.

Perhaps I could splice a new wire on to what is left of the original wire?

I've spliced coil wires (ones that didnt screw out and  were molded in). Spliced ground wires to on/off from coil before too. Whatever it takes to get the job done cheaply for most folks.

What is really the problem is the little brass barrel crimped to the wire end is missing and I cannot find just the barrel any where. So was thinking if I could find a wire with that end good I would splice on another end.

Well, it appears that McMaster Carr sells the little brass crimp on end that goes in the start/stop switch. On the saw that I have the end is missing. So, if any one has an 028 and would be willing to measure the one they have perhaps I could get the right size ordered. I would need to know the diameter and length of the pin.

Thank you.

When I changed the coil on my 028 , I cut this wire off from the points. I was about to throw it away. Its 10 inches long  without the spade connector , just cut wire and the brass barrel on the other end. If you want it , PM me your address and I'll mail it to you . no charge , its the least I can do in exchange for all the good info on this site.
