" I tested for spark and I'm not getting any so changed the coil with a new, still none"

Of course not. You have a bad battery. A new coil and a dead battery still means no spark. The coil doesn't manufacture a spark. It needs a fully charged battery. Weak battery equals a weak spark.

" I'm starting to think about possibly the cutout may have gone bad"

They usually go bad by sticking closed and draining the battery. If it stuck open, the battery wouldn't charge. What was your ammeter showing?

What did the load and hydrometer tests show on your battery?
