Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Engine just has the coil and the magnet in the flywheel to make the spark. Have you tried removing the black kill wire from the coil, and checking for spark?
How are you checking the spark? Spark plug removed, and grounded to the metal of the engine, while cranking?
No spark with kill wire removed?
Wire is not grounded?
Magnet clean? I have never seen a magnet go bad! I assume you tested old and new coil same ?
Genuine Briggs replacement coil? Correct coil? Briggs and Stratton 799582
Only one magnet in the outside of the flywheel.

From every indication, the new and old coil are bad!
