Hello everyone

The engine will spark and ignite with the starter engaged, but as soon as I Iet off the button the motor instantly dies. I can get around this by hitting the throttle a few times while it's turning over, gets some RPM with the starter engaged and then let off. After that it runs and idles. However, if I use the winch (in this case to raise the plow), as soon as it has a bit of a load the engine dies. Seems to me that it's losing spark with the extra electrical load.

I've replaced the battery per other discussions I've found on the topic and replaced the coil. It's charging at around 14v. I've also tried disconnecting the winch as well as verifying the ground is good. My next guess is the CDI, but don't want to drop the money on a guess. Any ideas?
