Yes a bad plug can make it not run. It can also make it run like crap. Same as for the coil. If the coil is weak it will not spark in the head bc o the compression inside is the head. So one thing make sure that spark is bright.

Yea if its flooding out and getting wet. Try starting it and if it dont start pull the plug and see if its wet or dry. Also check the spark should be a nice blue color if its orange its your coil has gone bad and if its white its your plug. I would even test spark with a cold motor and a hot motor if you can.

Bottom line is ...YES, a bad plug will cause it not to start... HOWEVER; if you checked and your spark plug IS getting spark...then NO, the spark plug is not your problem..

..take out your spark plug and pour a tiny amount of gas in the cylinder, put the spark plug back in and try to start it..if it fires and then dies, you have either a carberator issue or a fuel line issue..

...if all else is good...time to check the head gasket, intake gasket, piston rings, etc....

Yes very easy. Just turn the crank so the magnet is away from the coil loosen the 2 bolts and remove the coil. place the new coil on with a business card inbetween the flywheel and the coil hold the coil down and tighten the bolts up you may have to turn the flywheel to get the card out. Turn the flywheel just to check that the coil doesnt rub any where.

The fuse you can get at autozone and maybe walmart.

What box are you talking about?

forget about the electric start..just pull start for now...the gap matters because the gap is your 2-cycle (timing) .....if its firing and dies, check your fuel lines//if those are good, your carb is failing...get a new carb and u should be rolling again......
