Mower With a Briggs & Stratton Engine Won't Start

I have a Briggs and Stratton motor on my riding lawn mower that will not spark. Thought it might be the magneto and replaced it. No joy. How do I know I am not getting a spark? I pulled the plug wire and turned over the engine and put the wire next to the block hoping to see a spark, but I did not. Is there anything else to check to see if a spark is there?

I know this sounds silly, but did you replace your spark plug with a new one? Might be worth a try. (06/30/2009)
