I have a tecumseh 6.5, model #LEV 120. I've used it twice this year, tried to use yesterday and it wouldn't start. It's not getting any spark. How can I check the coil and what is the gap? I've tried disconnecting kill wire and I do have a new plug. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Got lawnmower running. I used tips from another post. Pulled coil, cleaned coil and flywheel with 220 sandpaper set gap with a business card reassembled and it started right up.

6.5 hp Briggs & Stratton lawnmower -no spark
I have a no spark problem on a 6.5 hp lawnmower. I have replaced the coil (twice), replaced the flywheel, have a new spark plug. I've removed the ground wire and still no spark. Does anyone have any additional suggestions? I've run out of things to try.
