    Anybody know what coil/ignitions interchange with which saws?

    I know this is a pretty general question. So if you can help out with the stihl models that I have that will be a help.

    I might get to have at a "junk pile" soon.

    That's a huge question you're asking. Just on the 064/066/MS650/MS660 saws alone there's 11 different flywheel/ignition module combinations. Luckily they kept it simple on the 044/440 and almost simple on the 046/460.

    I realize the maze of systems that were installed on the 066/660 and the Bosch/SEM ignitions for the 056 (I believe the SEM also came on a cutoff saw).

    Anyone know about the 028, 036, 038 saws?

    Those are simple - all use the 0000 400 1300. A few early versions differed but the FW is the same.

    Thanks Andy.

    I've got a whole bunch of these saws so I'll look for that number.

    I should be clearer... the FW differ from saw to saw but on any one model they all work.

    What about those proprietary shaped ones that came on 026 and 036 saws for a while? Have you had any luck using those on the bigger saws?

    I never tried - usually gone the other way and dumped dead units for 0000-400-1300. In theory.. they should work.
