Unplug the kill wires from the coils....crank engine and check to see if sparkplugs are firing.
If still no spark , grab on to the flywheel and see if you can shake it side to side (check endplay)
If the flywheel has too much endplay you will lose your airgaps between your coils and the flywheel magnet....hence no spark. If this is the case , set the airgaps at .016 - .018 .
Check for spark again
These engines are notorious for wearing out the top bushing on the engine.
