Question about Electrical Supplies
I put on a new ignition coil and a spark tester. I got it to light on the first pull but never again after that. What else could be the problem? It has 75 psi of pressure from the cylinder which should be enough.

SOURCE: Briggs & Stratton Burnt Brushes
I did find out that the inner slip ring was worn down. Still unknown why and the repair tech we took it to twice just replaced the brushes and never looked at the slip rings.
My solution, which has worked for over two months now (knock on wood) is as follows:
The slip ring on this unit can only be replaced by replacing the whole rotor assembly. I looked at the width of the brushes and the width of slip rings. The slip rings are twice as big as a brush. The solution was to move the brushes outward by one brush length. In order to do that, I had to turn the brush assembly around because of the extra plastic on the unit and space it out one brush length. Note: Still hook the wires as if the brush assembly was not turned around.
I used an old brush assembly and cut the two areas where the screws go through to make my spacers and it works perfectly.

possibly a commpression test might throw a little more light on the situation ,that will eliminate alot of speculation, and make it easier

make sure the plug wireisn't grounding on sheet metal. Verify current to ignition module and that module is securely mounted for grounding. Negative side of coil to module, pos to ignition switch or starter button . Chk for current at coil +. . Coil -- should pulsate when cranking. Ensure there are no inline fuses, fuse box fuses, or fusible links incorporated into wires lesding to module. Good Luck_Ned_

The "heavy wire" connects to the spark plug. It should have a plug connector attached. There are 2 small wires. One of them grounds to the engine block (probably through one of the screws that holds the magneto in place). The other wire goes to the condensor/capacitor.
