Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Cub Cadet with a single cylinder Kohler engine? Remove the single wire from the coil and check for spark with the plug removed and grounded to the metal of the engine. If no spark, try another spark plug,and if still no spark, go back and try the old coil with same test. Still no spark, check the coil mounting, to be sure coil is not shorting out to the block. And it is not unusual to get a bad new coil!
