Is there spark if you put the plug in the plug wire and ground the plug on the engine while someone pulls the rope?
Expert:  Vince O. replied 2 years ago.
I have already found a pinched wire spot in the kill wire going from coil to the shut off switch.it was under the thinner metal breather tube.

i have tested for spark with a spark tester that clamps to engine. i have replaced the magento coil w/o the kill switch connected. no spark
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
the rope starter and housing are removed. i turn the flywheel by hand.
Expert:  Vince O. replied 2 years ago.
I would still try using a plug to look for a spark. Turning by hand may not be good enough

can you contact me by phone

Did you put the starter on and check for spark?
