If you're not getting any spark at all, try cranking it with the kill wire disconnected. Make sure the coil is properly grounded. Make sure the magnet and coil are properly gapped.

Hello and Welcome to Hobby Talk.Did you also replace the spark plug with one properly gapped? I just repaired a Briggs with no spark and the plug was shorted out internally.When you replaced the coil,did you set the air gap between the flywheel and coil to .012? A business card is the correct thickness.Here is a link to the service manual to help you.

Make sure you have the coil/module installed correctly. They can be installed upside down and will not work. Most are marked "This side out" or "Cyl Side" or something that describes the proper orientation.

Best of Luck....:thumbsup:
