Hi I'm Wayne
I will help you with this
to check for spark,
is remove the spark plug, attach the wire to it
lay plug on the engine so it gets grounded,
pull the cord, you want a nice blue spark
or the other way, is insert a Phillips screwdriver
in the plug wire, hold it close to engine and pull cord again
to see if spark , DON'T TOUCH THE METAL OF THE SHAFT
