A weak 6 volt battery can crank an engine seemingly as normal but not have enough capacity to create the necessary spark. Load testing the battery will disclose whether this is the issue. As they say, clean and tighten all the battery connections. It only takes a very little resistance to mimic a weak battery. If it does hot and is a non- spark condition at that point, probably coil related.
