Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. What brand is your engine?
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.
Remove the small black kill wire from your ignition module, then check for spark again. Let's see if you get a spark with your kill wire unplugged.

You and I can continue from here. Thanks!

Still no spark. Last 2 things to replace would be the stator n regulator, could those cause the problem?

Compression is about 38
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.
Sorry for the delay. Your stator and regulator will not prevent your ignition from producing a spark. Without your kill wire connected, there is only two things that will prevent spark to your spark plug.Weak magnets on your flywheel.Faulty ignition module.If your flywheel magnets are good and strong, then your ignition module is bad, although it it new.
