Craftsman Leaf Blower

This unit worked fine for many years, now i cant get it started. Seems like the spark is weak at the end of the sparkplug wire, and i cant see any spark at the electrode of the sparkplug. Unit seems to be geting gas, even poured a little into the carb, wants to start, but like i said i think the spark is too weak for it to fire. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks Jim

The first item to check is the coil to flywheel air-gap...+- .012". Next step if that is OK is to disconnect the kill wire at the coil in order to isolate the coil as the source. If, with the proper gap and the wire removed, you still have weak spark then it's time to replace the coil.
