no fire at spark plug on 16 hp Tecumseh

Craftsman s/16 model#917.25742 Engine # is 143.640022
Ive replaced solid state magneto #610906 and still have no spark at the spark plug.This is a very old (probably 1972 or 1973) Sears garden tractor with 16 horsepower Tecumseh all cast iron engine.Please tell me how to troubleshoot from here.This thing has wore me out.Ive exhausted all my options. Thanks,Charles

Try disconnecting the kill wire at the magneto and check for spark.
This engine may have a timing procedure that needs done also when replacing the coil.
I am not familiar with it just aware of it, but others are sure to be along.

Here is a post on setting timing. Seems if you moved the stator plate, it will need timed if your mag is on the inside of the flywheel.
