Craftsman 6.0hp OVC, no spark

I have taken the magneto off and cleaned the contacts and made sure the flywheel is free of rust and debris. It was working fine 2 days ago,and now no spark!! This is a Craftsman power washer, by the way. I would give you sn, but craftsman doesn't ever make it easy. I have looked on the motor housing, but don't see one. Should I but a new magneto as I am unsure at this point.....thanks for everything!!!

Make sure the armature is on right-side-up, unplug the kill wire, use a good spark plug and make sure it is grounded when checking for spark, and make sure the air gap between the armature and flywheel is .010". If still no spark, replace the armature.
