Ariens ST524 New but no spark?

Hello snowbound friends,

I picked up a used Ariens ST524 with a 5 HP Tecumseh engine from a neighbor who said it had not been run in a while. This unit looks out of the box new, no wear or grime. The paint is not even faded.

It has no spark. I tried the cut off switch both ways. Nothing. It clearly has not been used enough to have worn out. What might affect the spark that would happen just from sitting? I am enough of a mechanic to go through the whole thing but would like to save time by being headed in the right direction.

Thanks

Do
the little plastic key inserted properly? Tried another plug? Throttle has to be in up position. Just for easy checks.
Maybe this will help?

Or this
