    Is the key turned on? That's something I would have forgotten to do, then I'd laugh at myself all day while I was using it. :laugh: :headphones: :laugh: :laugh:

    Check the airgap between the ignition coil and flywheel? Dont know if you took this apart or not but the gap should be about 1 business card in thickness.

    Pull the kill wire off of the ignition module, with a spark tester hooked to the end of the plug wire, spin it over with the starter. If no spark, the ignition coil may be bad. IF this is a Kohler, make sure the coil is right side up. On Kohler single cylinders, if the coil is upside down it won't work. There is an arrow stamped on the plastic of the coil. When bolted down you SHOULD see the arrow pointing in the direction of rotation of the flywheel. If the coil is upside down you will have NO spark at all.
