I was cutting some firewood at the beach. Saw was running perfect as normal and then just up and quit. Gas has been in it for a while, but it’s good non-ethanol with Stihl oil. It was running long enough that it wasn’t just the bowl emptying before it died. I pulled the plug and grounded it out on the cylinder and pulled the starter. No spark. I’ve already ordered a new coil, wire, and plug. Plug is fine, but what the hell, I’ll replace it too. Is there any reason I can’t just swap it out? Is my troubleshooting and solution sound? Anything else to check?
