Tecumseh Sears Eager-1 6HP mower will not start.

I am working on a Sears Eager-1 6hp self-propelled walk behind mower (Model# 143.956002) for a friend. He said he changed the spark plug, and it started, then died, and now will not start. I've taken the carb apart and cleaned all the jets/orifices/etc. Everything there looks okay, so I started looking at the ignition. When I check for spark with an in-line spark tester, it lights up, but I can not see a spark at the plug when I ground it and try to turn over the engine. Wondering if anyone has any ideas, or knows what the resistance should be across the coil? The spark plug is gapped correctly, and we've tried 2 different brand new plugs.

    I held the plug against the block with gloves, and even watched it in the dark. after cleaning the block with a wire brush. I'm not thinking it's compression, because it ran fine then stopped, and it sounds like its getting pretty good compression when turning it over. (I don't have a comp tester handy) Fuel is getting to the carb and filling the bowl.

If you have the smell of rubber burning the belt isn't gripping. Make sure that there isn't anything stopping the wheels turning like old grass or even a piece of twig. If their clear try adjusting the tension on the drive pully.

Toro 6.5 HP Self propelled walk behind 22


take the top cover off the engine. you will see the coil on top there. unplug the wire that plugs into it. put the cover back on and try to start it. if it starts it is not the coil. try a different spark plug first. pull the cord with the plug out to get all the gas out of the engine.
