good morning my name is ***** ***** ill see what I can do to help. first off it sounds like you have replaced some parts here correct?
do you have spark?
do you have fuel going to the carb?
ok. so do you have spark and do you have fuel?
is the spark plug wet or dry? do you have a strong gasoline smell in the muffler?
and you have visually seen a spark from the plug?
you stated that the coil was replaced, was the plug replaced?
absolutely you should retest. if the plug is wet that means that fuel isn't being ignited
must have the following to run
check for spark and let me know
if no spark make sure the coil isn't grounded out (that how it shuts down) if you follow the cable that moves when you release the bar you should see the mechanism that grounds out the coil. make sure your air gap between the coil and the flywheel magnets are correct (aprox. the thickness of a match book) make sure the magnets on the flywheel are clean and not rusty.
