Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !!
Coil has a single kill wire going to it. Remove the small wire and see if you now have spark.??
What is engine make and model, the sears number does not idenify it.
tried that still no spark. briggs @ strattonn 6.75 hp 190cc
All Briggs use same type of ignition system Are you grounding the plug while chyecking for spark?
Is the coil about .010 from the flywheel magnet?
Then th enew coil is bad too. I would take the mower back to sears and have them fix it.
There is nothing else that makes spark on the engine!
do you know what the ohms reading in the coil should be?
Briggs does not give ohm reading, did you see the link on the system I sent?
yes i'll try that link ?
ok, let me know what you find.
The web site you sent me to, tells me to do exaty what i have been doing. Iwill make a .010" gauge out of non-metalic material to re check the coil gap. but i'm sure it is set correctly.
