Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others
Check all the grounding point for corrosion.
The flywheel needs to be remove with a flywheel puller. There are (should be) 3 holes in the center of the flywheel. Tap the holes with a 1/4 inch 20 national course tap. You can use the Tecumseh puller, recommended, or use another puller that fits the flywheel hole pattern.
When you re-install the flywheel, make sure you squeeze the engine shut-off lever or you will damage the flywheel brake.
As for the coil, disconnect the small wire(s) connected to the coil...it should be a push on type spade connector. Remove the spark plug and re-install the starter. Check for spark. If you have spark then the coil is fine and you either have a bad wire or a stretched engine shut-off cable. I rarely find bad coils; it is either the cable or wire. As for a sheared key, you will normally have spark.
1- Check the Flywheel Key. If the Key is Damaged it Will Cause this Problem. The Flywheel Key Times the Engine. 2- Check the Coil Clearance from the Flywheel. It should be .020in. 3- Check the Spark Plug Gap. Should be ,035in. 4- Check the Valve Lash on the Exhaust Valve. Should be .017in Clearance Between the Valve Stem and the Valve tappet. 5- Check for a Burnt Valve(the valve must be removed from the engine block to perform this check). Hope this Helps.

There is a shutdown wire, this wire is grounded somewhere along the route. Look at the coil for this wire; it shorts the coil to ground so no spark can get out to the plug.
Let us know if you want to know something else accept the suggestion.
