    I have come across a Sachs Dolmar 120 in very good, low hour condition. My problem is no spark. This saw used KDT 119140100 which is no longer available and later models used SEM 119140210 which is also NLA. It would be ashame to scrap the saw because of this. Anyone have any ideas, parts or other comments?

    Ignition

    Are you sure it's not the on/off switch or wiring? Seems odd for the ignition to go bad on a low hours saw. Did you run all the wires? I'm new around here so maybe I'm out in left field, but that's what I would check.

    Yeah David I checked and replaced the ground wire to the switch, I am positive its not shorting out. Maybe the faulty trigger (?) is why it appears to be a low hour saw. I ve heard they can quit out of the blue :angry2:
