I have an old Tecumseh 7hp engine (model VT-7), that gets power through the spark plug cable (tested using the hands-on approach), but does not spark the plug. It won't even jump to ground when put right next to the engine block (closer than the plug gap). What could be causing this low-power situation?

I've never heard of a VT7 motor but I don't know how old your particular motor is. I would change out the points and condenser, they are the usual culprites in ignition loss.
There is the possibility that your coil could be bad but do the points/condenser first.
