B/S engine with no spark

I have moved your post from the electronic alarms category to the small engines section. Dane

I have a 16.5 HP B/S engine and no spark. Ran fine before I pulled engine. Guess I got something wired wrong so I'm asking for someone to send me a link for the wiring diagram. This motor is model 31c707. Elec start, type 0175 E1

If it's not sparking because of a wiring problem, the black wire to the coil is grounded. It's a small wire that plugs on to the coil. Sometimes it gets pinched behind the starter, between it and the block, causing no spark. If power got connected to this wire, your coil is burned out and you'll need another.
