Phil, all the guys got good ideas. I also noted that you said you had good spark from the cap to the wire? but not from the wire to the plug? If that is the case, you might look at your wires. i know they are new, but older tractors with weaker coils, or magnitos, do not have really hot sparks. it is more important to use copper core wires on these motors. if you got the new resistor wires, you can develope the problem you stated. ---also the motor cylinders number 1 in the front by the radiator and 4 in the back by the gas tank. as the guys said look at the wire rotation on the mag. note that 1-2-4-3 backward is 1-3-4-2. it is easy to get the center two cylinder wires mixed if you look at the mag rotation wrong. this asusumes you get spark at all four plugs first, which i am not sure you have. also put the sparking plugs in the bad wires and that will chekc the plugs virsus wires.
