plug is wet? May not have any spark! With spark plug removed, ground it to the metal of the engine and see if you have spark at the plug. Best to try a new spark plug. If no spark, locate the kill wire to the coil and remove it, and test for soar again. No spark with kill wire removed, the coil has failed.
