Stihl 015L module placement
« on: April 26, 2015, 11:16:50 pm »
 Hi, I am new here. This looks like a great website for chainsaw information. I want to know the best place to mount an electronic module that is replacing the points. My brother gave me this saw, it was not used very much since new. The points were badly pitted and it spit out gas. I rebuilt the carburetor and replaced the oil and gas tank gasket and cleaned everything. I replaced the fuel line and filter. Does anyone have a picture showing their module mounted and the wire route? This saw was made in Germany and it looks very well built. Any help is greatly appreciated. Jeff in east Texas

The electronic ignition version had the trigger module mounted where the points had been.

The points were in a little cup enclosure that was not on the electronic model.

I have the parts list and repair manual for the 015 series that I can email to you if necessary?
We should share what we know... someone may learn...

Hi 660 magnum, thanks for the reply. My saw originally had points. I saw they were not made anymore so I bought the electronic module to replace the points. I took the old points out. I am trying to see where others have mounted the aftermarket module. thanks Jeffery

I have not done this conversion but didn't your module come with instructions on how to mount it.   Because it should have.

You could remove the plug and put a dial indicator down the spark hole and find top dead center.   Once you have that then mount the trigger you bought so that it triggers the coil for the spark at that location.   Putting a degree wheel on the crank shaft will also let you find out exactly how many degrees advanced the spark will be.

The Stihl made module and bracket fits nicely bolted on one of the legs of the coil angled diagonally upward, the aftermarket ones, not as much luck plus the most of them are different and won't work.
