Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Have you gone back and checked each item again? If still no spark, run each test, and see what has failed, or if wire is loose?

checked all the wiring--motor turns over but has a real weak spark

Weak spark would be coil, try the old one!

rt last night and could not get it to start up. I just went to work on it and it started right up. I shut it off and on few times and it started every time. I hooked up the kill switch and it started. I did notice a clicking sound when ever i pushed on the accelerator. Is it possible for the solenoid to quit working and then work again.
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
Solenoids can be intermittent. They will click, but not complete the connection on the large terminals due to bad contacts in the solenoid.
