Why doesn't my two cylinder BriggsStraton overhead valve engine have any spark?

key switch could be bad, points stuck not set right, key way sheared,
Clean contact breaker points,after a while contact points get a build up of a carbon deposit,clean with fine emery cloth or fine grade sandpaper.If points are badly pitted renew,lastly check sparkplug for carbon deposits,clean with a plug sandblaster.or wire brush and a pin,if that fails try a new spark plug. If that doesn't solve it it's a problem with the magneto. Good luck.
