I have never put one of those atoms in can you show how it is done if you don't mind. I have a friend of mine that wants me to fix up a couple 031's that he has and I know for sure that one of them has points. Last time I have mess with something like the atom was on a briggs motor in high school small engines class. Any help would be great.

Who you talking to?  I aint  doing squat to these things. ;) 

If someone else please show it being done. I have seen it before in past when I had the last one but wasnt worth the trouble to me. But I dont care enough about these.

The 031 is not so straight forward when using the Atom.

There's a polarity problem and then a timing problem.

The flywheel needs to be moved.

More often with the 031 points saws it is just the capacitor that's bad.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .

This is how I figured out I didnt just have a fuel issue after going through everything. But a spark issue too.

After all the above the saw would run great and then stop.  I ran the saw with the old school spark light tester attached during testing so I could watch it. Great spark for mins on hand then, like you flip the switch off.  Just glad I figured it out for owner even though not good news.
