ok guys, time for your thinking caps see if you and i are on the same pages. 5hp ariens tiller. has spark, but here is the kicker. cleaned and adjusted points,cleaned and gaped coil. no spark at plug. but if i hold wire and touch metal i get spark through me. i assum bad ground, but have cleaned all grounding surfaces as best as i can. checked wire connections, check good. maybe whe condenser wire at coil is bad and jumping ground? do i need a new coil since i get spark but not in the plug? i have another engine with this problem sorta but need this tiller running and roaring asap for resale.

If your holding the spark plug wire where it attaches to the plug seems to me it has GOT to be the plug, or MAYBE the inside of the plug wire is rusted not making contact with the plug.
