A:

On the ignition module there will be a little black wire that plugs into a terminal. Unplug that wire and see if you now have spark. If you do, you will need to pull the spark plug wires to shut the engine off. Also, if you have spark with that wire off, that means that you have no problem with the ignition coil and/or plugs. Since you already have a new ignition switch what you'll need to do is trace that black wire all the way back to the ignition switch looking for a place where the wire may be pinched or skinned causing it to ground out.

Let's say that you unplug that wire and still don't have spark. That leaves spark plugs, ignition coil, or flywheel as being the issue. While I mention flywheel here; did you adjust the air gap when you replaced the coil? If not, that needs to be adjusted to the thickness of the box the coil came in.

The spark plugs both being bad when new would be highly unlikely. You replaced the coil; make sure you have it sitting the right way. Some of them can be mounted upside down and they won't work. On the flywheel make sure the magnet still is good. You can lay a 9/16 wrench on it and you should have to give it a little tug to pull it off the flywheel. I've never seen this particular engine have a flywheel magnet fail. But they sell flywheels, so I know it happens.

I have a pretty good feeling that you will find the problem with that black "kill" wire circuit.
