Hello, your not the first to need a new coil for these series of Pioneer saws.

After I had restored my Pioneer 750 with which I ended up using the coil from a C series Homelite which I had to modify the original Pioneer core to fit, I ran across a coil that I thought would bolt right on it that was for a Johnson/Evenrude outboard motor.

Johnson Evinrude 584477 is the one if my notes are correct. Do a google search for that and you will find them all over the place.

I know Torinocobra bought some and said it would work. I think Cbfarmall did as well.

The Johnson Evinrude coil works perfectly. Square hole matches the chainsaw laminated core and the wire points the correct direction. I had to extend the lead to the points, but that was all.
