    Ok brother. Not sure if I may need the help of staff to do that or not. It took me well over an hour of typing and adding pictures to post that up.

    if it were me...


    - Id make sure I had a "straight" intake boot. see attached pic. and make sure it's on. I've done it where it's loose...taken these 661s apart so many times.

    - I'd check the spark screen wasn't clogged up and then put a wider weave screen in.

    - I'd take the top plate and bottom plate off the carb and just clean up the insides a little.

    - I'd just get a kit (v3 coil, white solenoid, orange fuel filter) - 1144 007 1801. dealer is apprx $50. Stihl doesn't show a retail price. Reality is it should be covered under the emissions warranty. If you want to fight that battle.
    anyway I'd put that new coil, solenoid and filter in. Don't even bother fcking with other stuff. Just get the kit, replace all 3 and be done with it. Run the CALIBRATION. Reset is for 4700c, 4700d, 4700e 4701a coils. v3 coil = 4702a and v3 = CALIBRATION NOT RESET. The coil determines calibration or reset not the solenoid.

    - I'd check the indexing of the spark plug. I'm anal. I'd replace spark plug with new NGK.

    replace coil -


    replae solenoid


    replace fuel filter

    Update.... Long story short....new solenoid was the fix. Finally got a "new" white solenoid with the upgraded "kit"( red filter, 4704 coil and white solenoid) I replaced them one at a time (bottom up- filter, coil, solenoid) to see if one was the issue and the last installed (white solenoid) let it idle and then. "Reset"

    Thanks all.
