Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! If you remove the spark plug and ground it, do you have spark? If not, try a different spark plug. Then it would be time to check the coil, you would need to locate the kill wire to the coil and unplug it , to see if the kill wire is killing the spark.
