Re: I lost spark to the spark plug!
There is a magnet on the above the flywheel that creates spark. It is called the armature. This will allow you to get spark as long as your flywheel is good, but this is the most common cause besides electric start system

You didn't say if there is a spark. Pull the plug out and hook the wire to it and ground the plug to engine. If there is spark then it is likely a fuel problem. Squirt a little starting fluid or gas in the sparkplug hole before putting the plug in and see if it fires. Pull the fuel line off the carb and check the flow.
it could have a bad coil when it dies check for spark it's not uncommon for a coil to die when it gets hot take a old spark plug and put it onto the plug wire and hold it against a bolt pull the engine over and look for spark
first make sure the motor isn't engaged when trying to start it, and If it has been sitting for awhile, (in between seasons), It's likely that the carb is clogged, try cleaning it out, make sure the spark plug is firing correctly. And if it's getting spark, and its getting fuel, but still wont start, then the carb may need adjusting.
hello jenny - did u replace that spark plug with a new one with exactly the same numbers on it and did you gap the new spark plug according to your owner manual...........get back as i will hang in there with you on this.
Obviously fuel is flowing but not being ignited. Check spark plug and replace with a new one, then check for spark using a spark testing tool if still having problems. You need three things to get it to fire: fuel flow, spark, and compression... Hopefully the motor still has good compression, but check for spark problems first.
