Grounding it is how you shut it off or kill the spark. You want to make sure none of the wires are nicked and grounding including those running to the throttle lever or on/off key should you have one.
What did you use to set the point gap and coil gap ??

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

If you are talking about the wires to the throttle and/or any interlocks, they need to *un*-grounded. Grounding these lines shuts down the magneto and stops the engine. Plug ground is through the block, and no other wiring outside the mag should be needed to run.

Double check the points are set right. Check magnets if all that's good and still no spark replace coil
