Hello Tony. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. I would like to ask you a couple of troubleshooting questions.

Expert:  Donald replied 9 months ago.
  • After installing your new ignition coil, did you set the gap between your flywheel, and your ignition coil?
  • Have you tried removing the kill wire from your ignition coil, then checking for spark, without your kill wire connected?
  • What method are you using, to check for spark?
Expert:  Donald replied 9 months ago.

If you have already set the gap between your ignition coil and your flywheel, and you still do not get a spark, even after you disconnect your kill wire, then you could possibly have a faulty new ignition coil.
