Re: Lack of spark at coil

Sounds like bad ignition switch or a bad connection. I would disconnect the
starter cable from the relay and check if the coil gets 12V in the 'start'
position. If it doesn't, follow the wiring back to the switch.

Re: Lack of spark at coil

take out your ignition module, and have it tested at Autozone for free, or
just replace it for $30.
