I think its grounding out on the wire that hooks into the killswitch. It has that metal connector or its the white wire.

Check if its grounding out on the coil, it really shouldnt be this hard. Wrap any contact points on your coil in electrical tape AFTER Its bolted to the block.

Did you actually disconnect the kill switch wires from the coil or just from the switch?

Try insulating the coil from the cover and the cover from the block.

It should spark both ways as long as the magnet passes by the pick ups...
