If you check for spark at the plugs, do you have spark? The coils on the SV700 are fixed, though .010 inch is the setting for most Kohlers. Here is service manual, showing the three different coils and ignition systems used. How may wires were on your coils? One, two, or three, that identifies the type.

If you have spark, you may have problem with the fuel solenoid on the carburetor.
