If there is a broken KEY on your magneto (left side, front cover) the engine MAY spark but at the wrong time.
Also, in my snowmobiling days, I found that a sparkplug would spark when out of the engine but under compression, it would not start or even fire up.
I have put gas into the engine and tried to start it. It did not work that either.
