Trying to get an old engine running

Howdy...I just started a little project. My brother dropped off an old rusty craftsman lawn tractor. I began by checking for spark. I tried a few different plugs and looked for spark...none. I wanted to be sure so I held the wire and tested it. There was a slight shock. My question is this:
Is it possible to have a weak spark that would not show a spark when attached to the plug?

If so, how do I go about getting more of a spark?

It's possible. Post some info so we know what we're talking about.

God bless!
