Default Hello from Southern Califorina

Hi everybody, I'm new here on the forums and new with working on old engines. I have a 1938 Johnson 1.1 hp outboard motor. I got this engine a couple months ago for free from an old lady whos husband died. I took the whole thing apart to check out all the mechanical stuff, and everything seemed fine besides being dirty. After putting everything back together and cleaning it I have no spark. I took the coil out and tested it and i think theres a broken wire on the inside because i didnt get any reading on it. Is there anybody on here that knows where I can get my coil rewound or has any suggestions on what I can do?

Thanks, Chris
