Bolens trimmer

31cc Bolens trimmer has no spark. If I read my ohm meter correctly the coil primary resistance is about 1000 ohms. I bought the trimmer at a garage sale noing it would not start but suspected fuel problems. Since I have no spark I need some trouble shooting suggestions

Disconnect the kill wire from the coil and test for spark with the spark plug properly grounded. If no spark, then you have a bad coil, plug, or improper air gap between the coil and flywheel.
