Your ignition coil may have failed on your right cylinder.

Technician: Donald, Small Engine Technician replied 2 months ago

There is a small wire attached to your ignition coil. This is your kill wire. Remove the kill wire from your ignition coil then check for spark again without this wire attached.

It is not too difficult.

what is the probability that this is the real problem
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I will get back in a few days
Technician: Donald, Small Engine Technician replied 2 months ago

It is very possibly the problem. If you can remove the kill wire from the coil on the right side, to see if you get a spark without your kill wire attached, this will confirm whether your coil is bad or not.
