I did get the old spark plug tip out but it wasn't easy. Apparently the kid took a hammer and pounded it down in there, because I tried just needle nose pliers, and it wouldn't come out. Now my issue is that I'm not getting spark. This thing is not running right now, and I've never heard it run. I noticed that the coil is apparently missing a part along the bottom. I have taken a look at other coils and they all have a metal plate around them, this one does not. I can't even ground those wires, because the coil is missing the plate on the bottom.
