I need the ignition coil for my McCulloch Eager Beaver Super-SL

Customer Question

I need the ignition coil for my McCulloch Eager Beaver Super-SL String Trimmer. I believe the part number for the coil is 219848. Do you know where I might find one ?

Those coils are few and far in between. They stopped making them over 15 years ago. Your best bet is to find another unit you take one off of( like ebay ), or modify a newer one to fit.

Sorry, I am not totally satisfied. I had hoped for a more definitive answer.
Expert:  Ranwell1 replied 5 years ago.
If you can contact Just answer and get permission for me to give you my personal information. I probably have a part that will repair you machine. I will have to have more information to make sure, but I have a great deal of McCulloch parts for the old obsolete saw. Rules of the site prohibit me from giving this contact information. I am Located in Greenfield Indiana
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Your answer talks about a "saw", presumably a chain saw which I'm sure McCulloch made in the past, but my problem is with their "string trimmer". It's possible that the ignition coil I am in search of may be common to both products, I don't know. The part number of the coil I need is imprinted right on the coil.
I'm not quite sure how to contact"Just Answer", but I will try if there's a chance you have the part.
Expert:  Ranwell1 replied 5 years ago.
Ok, I missed the string trimmer part, The coils are not the same, but my answer remains the same. Although most of the time when you are talking about string McCulloch trimmers, we usually recommend that you just buy a new one. Repairing them usually is more money than most customers are willing to spend. If you have the part number of the coil, I can check to see if I hane one in stock. Also there is a possiblility that we mignt have a used trimmer that has the same engine as your that might have a good coil on it. Lt me know..

The number imprinted on the coil is 219848 and the McCulloch trimmer is a Eager Beaver Super-SL

Thanks Ranwell1. Now that is an answer that I can "take to the bank", as they say.
I do a lot of repair work around the house and for my kids and grandkids as well. Hopefully we'll do business again.

This inquiry was resolved and paid for back in June 2009. Why does it show up in my account status as "waiting for me" ???
Expert:  Ranwell1 replied 4 years ago.

IT will always show the waiting for me...because I was the last one to respond to this post. Just leave it alone. I alsway respond last on purpose do I don't get a tremendous number of messages in my inbox telling me I need to respond to a question. This is because this site allows you to continue a conversation even after the payment is made.
