Have you taken the shroud / cover off your engine, to expose your ignition coil?
There is a small black wire attached to your ignition coil. This is your kill wire. Remove your kill wire, from your ignition coil, then check for spark again, using the procedure, in the link above.
Is there any rust on your flywheel, or on the legs of your ignition coil?
If there is no rust present, and you are not getting a spark, after you removed the kill wire from your ignition coil, is an indication that your ignition coil is bad, and will need to be replaced.
Without your kill wire attached, there is nothing to prevent your ignition coil from producing a spark.
Where did you get the ohm specs for your coil?
