OK, that needs to be done

remove the plug put wire back on lay the plug on the engine so it grounds then yes,crank it over

I don’t see it spark. Bad spark plug?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Never mind. I am seeing a spark on the plug when turning it over. Barely see it though

HI

if it is a weak yellow spark, not bright blue

that is saying that your coil is failing also if this is a ongoing issue

I suggest replacing the coil

I hope this helps you
