Hello my name is Donald. I will be happy to assist you. Remove the small black kill wire from your ignition, and check again for spark. If you still do not get a spark, then your ignition coil is very likely at fault, and will need to be replaced.

I disconnected the black wire still no spark. Where can I get a coil. Do not know the part number to order on line.

I will need the model and type numbers for your engine, in order to get the part numbers for your ignition coil.
