Craftsman LT10 No Spark

I bought this from my neighbor last month. It was running fine last year but this year it wouldn't start. I did some investigating an found that there was no spark.

So I decided to replace the coil, condenser, and point in the magneto. Thinking that that would fix the issue.

Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. I still haven't figured this thing out. I need help.

Did you set the points properly? Are you grounding the plug when checking for spark? Is the plug good? Does it have spark with the kill wire disconnected from the points?
