Chainsaw not sparking!
I've been given an old McCulloch chainsaw that I'm trying to get working, the problem I'm having is it that it won't spark. I've put a brand new plug in to eliminate that possibility, I've tested the coil with a multimeter and it produces between 12 - 15 Volts on the AC setting, but nothing on the DC setting. Are these supposed to have some kind of rectifier on them or does it not matter whether its AC or DC?
I've had the coil off and cleaned the pickup, and cleaned the magneto with wire wool. Tested the coils resistance, its about 10k ohms. Not sure what else to try now so any suggestions would be very much appreciated!!
