So I couldn't remove the piston ring so I got a new piston kit. Installed as soon as I could so I wouldn't forget how. Not too many left over parts (kidding). Just tried to start without so much as a sputter. Confirmed it's geeting gas, got air. But not getting fire. Took wire off and jumped to ground with screwdriver and pulled cord, nothing. This was not a problem before and I can't think of anything I'd changed in the reassembly. Before I tear it apart again, anything I should be looking for?

What wire are you jumping to ground? Unplug the kill wire from the coil, put a plug in the wire, and make sure the metal part of the plug is touching ground, then check for spark. If still no spark, check the air gap on the coil.
