Roto Tiller (Mantis) not starting


This 2cy tiller won't start. I just bought today and trying to diagnois what's the problem. I don't have spark. Pulled plug and attached to coil wire, ground to motor and no spark. Disconnected wire going from coil to switch and no juice. Took off coil, cleaned the coil and flywheel connections. Still nothing.

How do you test to see if a coil is good or not?

You have already done it. No spark with the kill switch disconnected and a .010 gap to flywheel = bad coil.
