    Stihl MS200t/201t - Spark test

    Does anyone have a suggestion as to why I can't see a spark on my stihl 200t and 201t chainsaws when I hold the thread of the spark plug against the engine casing and turn over the engine? I was doing this on my 201t due to just having installed a new ignition coil and was puzzled when I couldn't see a spark - I then went and tried the same test on my 200t which runs fine and I still couldn't see a spark!? Both saws start and run, but I can't ever see a spark using the mentioned method!
