16hp twin cylinder briggs, no spark

I have a 16hp twin cylinder briggs that sat all winter and now has no spark. I was just wondering if there is any way to test the electronic coil?

Depends on what engine you have, but unplug the kill wire from the coil(s) and if you still have no spark, the coil(s) is/are bad. Doubtful that 2 would be bad at the same time unless the battery got connected backwards.
