I dont have the service manual in front of me, it's easy enough to find for exact resistance measurements. These are just approximations but should be in the ballpark.
Might sound really dumb but is there any coils off a mower or auto store that would work for now...not too many stores to pick from out here

You could try an old school chrysler coil, though I dont know if they would work with the OEM ignitor. They work same principle though, power fed to 1 side, the other will spark every time it sees ground.

Ok so little update I got the cart home did a spark test all good. Compression test not so good so I tore back into it finding the head gasket had blown again. One head bolt had a helicoil that let loose. Got a slightly longer bolt that snugged up nicely and torqued them all to 20 ft lbs. now I’m thinking cool all done so I go to start it and now it squeaks like hell runs rough I’m about to give up on it sounds like clutch maybe still? I don’t want to dump money in it just looking for suggestions video attached

It looks as if you clutches are not shifting at all. That squeaking noise could be something in the clutches, but it also sounds like it might have a rod knock. It's hard to tell from a video. Drain the oil into a white cloth towel or old t shirt and look for metal shavings.

Agreed. That sounds really bad. It's hard to tell if its actually running or just the starter turning it over with all the racket. I would probably start by taking the cover off the clutch and checking for anything loose or out of whack, but all in all theres so much noise it's hard to tell over a video what it is or where it's coming from.
