The Farmsaw uses a module type coil. Never tried one on a points saw. You might be better off finding a standard coil for a points ignition. I subbed a Chinese coil for the Farmsaw and Homelite XL-76 saw that was for a Husqvarna 50 51 55 61 254 257 261 262 266 268 272.I'm restoring a P40 for a family member and it has no spark. I've replaced the plug, filed the points and even removed the wire trimmed a little to give it fresh wire at the contact but while I had it apart I noticed the coil is separating from the plastic. I found this old thread which states the Homelite SXL coil will work. My question is will the solid state coil work eliminating the points all togethear and will the existing flywheel work? In the meantime I have the old one baking.

I had to make brackets to make it fit.
