craftsman riding lawn mower model 917271021 with no spark to spark plug

i have a craftsman riding lawn mower model 917271021 with a Kohler 15.5 engine. i am not getting any spark to the spark plug. the wire going to the ignition unit (coil) is black and most of the harness the black wire is ground. i can't tell from the wiring diagram. i am not getting any power to the coil but i not familiar with how this system works. i am assuming this also doubles as points, am i correct?

Now that spring is here its time to take out those Lawn mowers but when it doesn't work it can be frustrating. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, a suggestion I have is to visit Sears Home Services website to set service with a Sears technician. I have attached the link below. Hope this helps!
