Question about Garden
How are you checking for spark. Best is to use inlne spark tester. If laying plug on plastic housing will never get spark because it is not grounded. Rere to have to replace coil and almost never need to replace flywheel. Unplug wire Going to stop switch from coil. If wire is grounded out or switch is bad not spark.

You can download the manual at www.managemyhome.com. I have the Ryobi 720r and the sparkplug is a champion RDJ7Y.

Check for spark in the new spark plug, if you have spark clean the carb fully and try again. make sure you have correct mix of gas to oil and it is not old use fresh gas oil mixture. Good luck pal.

The air gap for the ignition coil core to flywheel is adjustable on some engines and the gap does vary.
On a Stihl, I used a matchbook cover first, then doubled it and got the engine to start. That amounts to 8-10/1000ths (0.008-0.010") as measured with a digital caliper after-the-fact.
I'm troubleshooting another engine currently from a McCulloch Airstream IV that only has ~12 hours and no spark but the coil measures roughly as it should; around 1K Ohms. Was surprised to find the company went bankrupt in '99. Another one killed by Asians and fairly poor design.
