Loosen coil screws, adjust coil to magneto flywheel magnets with a double sheet of common paper, tighten screws, so that paper will pull out without tearing. That will give you the best chance for a good spark, with all you have done. Pull spark plug out , put top of plug back in spark boot.......crank ovr with rope, and ground spark plug on top of motor(metal), observe the blue spark. If none, check the short wires for any breaks from coil to switch. You can open handle and take out switch, if nothing else works.....then try and start. The wires are just to break the ground, to turn off motor. Can choke motor to stop.
Put switch in 'on' position, remove the spark plug and connect it to the HT lead and earth out the side of the spark plug, pull over the engine to see if you are getting a spark. Check the timing gap between the ignition module and the flywheel. 0.25 filler guage
if you have spark, then the carberator is plugged, replace it. Pull the spark plug, ground it to the engine, pull rope, whatch plug for spark. if no spark, remove kill switch wire from coil. pull rope agin, if you have spark, kill switch is bad. if stil no spark, you have bad coil.
take the spark plug out and pull the engine over with the spark plug in the wire and ground the plug to the trimmer and see if it sparks. if not flip the switch the other way and see if it sparks then you shall know.
