Those saws can be tricky to test for spark, as there is so much plastic. The side of the plug needs to be touching the metal of the block. Also, the coil needs to be grounded to the block as well, for it to work.

Pull tank vent off and see if it will run, if not pull plug out and turn saw upside down and pull recoil about 20 times and leave it sitting upside down to drain crankcase. If still not running Replace fuel and impulse lines, replace carb and intake boot if it's cracked.
