Hi Kevin. Is the emergency stop switch clip in place?

Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.

The ignition system is going to need to be troubleshot in order to find out why there is no spark. That takes a decent quality volt/ohm meter like a Fluke as well as the knowledge to use it. Do you have a meter, and do you know how to take electrical resistance measurements?
