no spark

I have a small Sears Craftsman push mower with a 4HP engine. It has not been used in several years but ran great when I put it away.
I have no spark. There are no lock out switches on it. I suspect the coil. Anyone know how to get to it?

Just take the shroud off the top of the engine and the coil is right there. Unplug the kill wire from the coil and check for spark again. If no spark, the coil is bad. If there is a spark, the cable to the kill switch is probably stretched.
