It may be the coil if there is not any spark. Or a wire could off at the coil. One more thing it could be is the spark plug wire may have came loose from the coil. These a few thing to check.

SOURCE: CRAFTMAN LEAF BLOWER WONT START
Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside

So far everything looks good. You're getting fuel, and you're getting spark. Only problem, is you've gotten too much fuel in it, and need to get rid of some before you can proceed. Take that spark plug out, and pull the starting rope hard several times. This will force the largest amounts of fuel out. Now's the part where you'll have to trust me. Use a match or a lighter to "flash" the cylinder. Make sure you don't have excess fuel spilled over the blower, but hold that match or lighter right up to the spark plug hole, and it'll "puff" at you. Please don't look into the hole while you're doing this. Flash the cylinder, and then pull the rope again, and flash it again. Next, make sure the spark plug is dry then put it back in. Set your choke to full choke, and pull until it hits once. Then put the choke on half, and it should start within 3 pulls.

it only means your spark plug is covered in oil. I do not expect any damage. try and remove and clean spark plug maybe use some gas to wash the excess off. maybe put a small drop of gas into the spark plug hole and replace. this may help start the engine. what you need to do this flush out all the oil so that the correct mix can get in. Also ensure no oil has got into the air filter ensure that is clearn before trying to start it again.
I hope this was useful
