Hello Tim, my name is***** the spark not functioning correctly on your engine, one of the 3 ignition parts is going bad. You have a stator, a ignition module and the coil. I would look at the input on the module to see if it is correct. If you have good voltage going into it and not coming out, it is the module that is bad.
