I have a Homelite pump. It has a Briggs and Stratton engine. It has not ran in a few years. It will not start. I have replaced the spark plug. I attached a spark tester and did not see it light up when I pulled the starter cord. Compression is good. I replaced the ignition coil. The old ignition coil black wire was grounded with the ignition coil but the second looks to just go to the engine chassis. The wire at the point where it attaches to the engine is covered in a black rubbery coating. Since I was not sure how to or where to attach the new coil wire (it is blue) I just cut the old wire and butt spliced (the old wire was black) it to the new ignition coil blue wire. But no spark. Should I directly attach the blue wire and if so where should I attach it? I am attaching pictures for reference.
Here is the engine information from the cover.
Thanks everyone for your advice.
