I grounded plug housing to engine block and tested it to see if it would fire while pulling start cord and there is no spark.
Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 1 year ago.

If there is no spark then your ignition coil has gone bad.

Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 1 year ago.

The replacement ignition coil is part number###-##-####and is $36.19. It is a major job to replace it because you have to take the machine completely apart to get to the coil in order to change it.
