Disconnect that wire and see if you get spark.

Gary...the igniter ..if you have 1...is located right beside the dipstick tube..
The small switch by the throttle is a kill switch used to stop the engine when the throttle is brought below idle....
I don't believe you ever stated how many screws are in the flywheel magnet...
Its very important...Help us to help you...

Thanks Gary
Gary.....these ignitions are simple and easy to diagnose...
You either have the wrong parts or the wrong wiring...
I cannot see or hear this engine that I'm trying to help you diagnose..
I realize you are frustrated....but ...that's what happens when you know everything except the thing that is causing your no spark isuue...
Is there a fuse in the sparkplug boot.??....new sparkplug..???

I really appreciate ur help (ALL) IT HAS 2 SCREWS IN THE MAGNET..i am not new at this altho i never had an igniter B4. I have one ? that is not getting answered. if i disconnect the ground wire (it has igniter hooked in it) then spin flywheel. Magnet passes coil set at .011 SHOULD I NOT GET A SPARK? I believe i should. Thanks Gary am wondering if i have a bad coil. IT IS NEW SO IS THE IGNITER AND SPARK PLUG.. Tks
