 no spark on 1 front cylinder

my gator is only running on the rear cylinder. I swapped the coils and plugs to check those. Still only runs on the rear.
I reseated the connections. I then pulled the plug and checked for spark, ... no spark... So what could be causing this to not to have spark only on the front cylinder? Or is there any test i can do to isolate where this problem may be? It will run but only on the rear. Also its a 6x4 John Deere trail boss thats about 8 -10 years old. we use it everyday so it gets a lot of use. thanks for your help Jeff

Did you try swapping the spark plug wire? Does it have a distributor cap?

There are two triggers that are mounted next to the flywheel at about 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock under the flywheel cover. Check the wires to them, also one could be bad. There is also a module that plugs in right beside the big main harness plug. It has two plugs on it, one goes to the trigger. It could be bad also. Check all plug connections.
