Photo Re: Remington chain saw?

Here is a pic of the set up of the points and module on the Remington. One wire to the points and one to the switch from the module! I thought the condenser stored up the charge until the points opened and sent the charge back through the module to the plug!! I just don't see any location where one was or could be mounted. Thanks again for all suggestions.

I have the same saw,only mine is made by Wards company. I need to find out (1) what the air gap should be set at . (2) what should the points be set at ? Can anyone suggest a place where I might find a bar to fit this saw ?

I have parts breakdowns for the Remingtons. Yours is a mighty mite but the yellow ones were I believe made for Wards. I have several of them all with spark. I also have a very small number of parts for Remington saws

I think this module is the same. Sometimes you may have to use the metal mounting bar (core) off your module, they are generally removable. Using a spark tester between the spark plug and lead if you pull the cord and no spark, most often its the module. They sell these new, but I would not know exactly which one would fit, but again as along as you can use your core, many new ones are the same size like the Wico 68716.
