Honda lawnmower/ no spark

Hey guys, I have a Honda lawnmower with no spark. It's an HHR2163VXA(GCV160 motor). I'm assuming it's the ignition coil, does anyone have another idea before I order one? I disconnected the Kill switch from the coil and still got no spark. Any help would be greatly appreciated...Tim

If you have the kill wire disconnected from the coil & the flywheel magnets have a good strong pull on them,, Than I think you need a coil,,, That's the entire ignition system & not much else to go wrong.... Roger

Make double sure the plug is touching metal on the engine while checking for spark and make sure you are using a new plug.
