    Bunton 48" won't start. It's got the Kawasaki 420 v motor. Checked obvious things, put new plug, new plug end, was getting small amount of spark but it just disappeared? Any tips? I'm not real familiar with the kaw motors.

    Single cylinder 420 ? I think they have an exciter and a coil some it is built in. Sounds like the coil or exciter if it is the one I'm thinking of, don't see many of them.

    You need to disconnect the unit kill wire from the engine and check for spark again, This will eliminate the stop or any safety switches.

    Posting the engine spec number off the white bar code label on the block will tell us if you have a exciter/control module with the coil or not.....
