sparkplug or a defect ignition coil, if the last option happens it is a very important that you should always note the serial number and year of age and the brand of the used engine because of marketing technical modifications can happen over time.
it happened in practice too often that some people just give up the model and then come to decide that there is no spark coming from the spark plug.

pull the bulb and retaing ring any way you can. don't try ti save them. you get a new retaing ring with the bulb. put the new bulb in then work the retaing ring in with a screw driver,clean everything behind the bulb before you put the new on in.

Lead is basically a lubricant with additional octane boosting properties for gasoline powered internal combustion engines. Engines intended to run with leaded gasoline that are provided with with unleaded gasoline instead are subject to overheating and failure. Read more about lead here:

Why Lead Used to Be Added To Gasoline

Your best bet would be to use leaded gasoline - or in the absence of a leaded gasoline source, a lead additive or substitute. Most autoparts stores sell this - and if you're not near one that does - Amazon has it:

Amazon com lead additive for gas

Good luck!
