well I'm going say that yes it will. Wacker who makes construction equipment has a line of units in cut off saws and their jumping jack rammer's. They are 2 stroke engined units if you use a none resistor type spark plug in them you will fry the coil. I know this for fact as I have replaced many due to this issue. Today's coils are like mini computers with circuit boards etc. They control everything from spark to timing advance to rev limiting. This also applies to makita,sachs dolmar,stihl etc. If your unit calls for a resistor type plug that's because the engineers have found that's what is required for that engine and that's what you should be using to prevent issues down the road
and yes you can use a resistor plug in replacement of a none resistor plug I just would not go the other way to protect your investment.
