Question about RedMax EB7001 coil wires

I am working on a RedMax EB7001 backpack. There are two wires coming from the coil that connect to two wires coming from the control handle. I don't remember which wire goes to which wire, and there are no markings on the wires to distinguish them. As long as I connect both wires, does it matter which goes where? Thanks!

First off, Skippy, there's only one wire coming from the coil, that would be the "kill" wire. And one wire coming from the block/ground. Don't matter which goes where.
" Wacker Mechanic"...bit of a stretch there, dare I say?

You're right, one is from ground. I didn't think anyone would pick that up. I am going to solder it, so I wanted to make sure first. I am not a real mechanic, I just play one on TV. I buy used machines, fix em, and resell. I just enjoy doing it. I have gotten pretty good at it, except for repairing compression, which I still think is the reason many of my machines don't run. I just wish they made "Engine Restorer" for 2 strokes. Do you know of any such thing? Ceramizer perhaps? Thanks for answering my question about the wires.

Google "ceramizer". It claims to do what "Engine Restorer" would do except that it can also be used on 2 strokes. I think that it is probably the same thing as Engine Restorer, but it is just not allowed to be marketed in the U.S. for 2 strokes because of the environmental concerns. It is lead based.

There's no "fix a motor" in a can.
New jug, piston and ring(s) either one or both.

Lead melts at 680 degrees.

A flame front in a gas engine approaches 1100.

Nothing in a bottle will restore scored cylinder walls.

It's on the internet, so it's gotta be true. It's just gotta work!

Running 16:1 would do the same thing. It'll drool mung but compression would be up.
