Hi Bobo.., welcome..!

Gonna need a bit more info.

Does the motor spin/crank when you turn the key..?

What did you do to determine there's no spark at the coil..??

Two sentences just won't be enough.....

The more info you give (including the above) the more likely we can help you.... :huh:

The motor turns over and yes pulled the wire from coil to cap and put a spark tester in the wire grounded the tester out and cranked the motor no spark from the tester

A test light may light up but you really need a volt meter. (borrow a neighbors)

Turn key to the "run" position.  Test voltage at the + post on the coil.

Turn the key to "start" ..., have someone read the voltage during cranking.

Fill-in your info. pages (see mine below & left on ea. post.  Can be up-dated at any time)

Still don't know what ignition you have..?

4V doesn't sound right.  Should be up around 12V

Bad battery..?  Dragging starter..?
