It could be the coil those things are pretty complicated. But I never had one that started a unit yet was bad.
I checked the holes in the block and cylinder and they were clean. I then checked the crank seals and the recoil side was spotless. However, the flywheel side had a small amount of greese/oil residue on it. Could that be the problem?
