If you have no spark with the plug grounded to the metal engine,, do some digging & remove the kill wire from the coil & try again,, If you have spark,, Look close @ the wire & the kill switch,,, If no spark,, You'll need a coil...(I trust you tried a New spark plug, Right???) Sorry... Roger

I assume you have the same blower that this thread is about, or is this something else? Info.
