Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 18 days ago.

Do you have the engine model numbers? No spark on either cylinder? May be problem with the kill circuit, from the key switch. Can you locate the kill wire going to the two coils and remove the kill wires and check for spark?

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
Kill switches do not allow engine to turn over engine turns over does not fire
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 18 days ago.

What is engine model number? Twin engine? No spark? Does the fule solenoid in the carburetor click if you flip key on and off?

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
Do not have serial number at this time but all kill switches do not allow engine to turn over. engine turns over no fire to plugs
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 18 days ago.

With twin engine, and if engine has no igniter, and uses only the coils and magnet in the flywheel for spark, the kill circuit to the coils is likely shorted out or the key switch is bad,
