SOURCE: Primer button Ryobi lawn hornet

Vacuum created by piston operation after closing the choke pulls fuel into carburetor port into engine. In much the same way as the primer bulb provides fuel for the port. These type engines usually take a few more pulls before they will start. And if there are any leaks in carb. system will be very hard to start.

Need magneto gap specifications between the flywheel and magneto.


I don't know the specs, but a business card inserted between the two always works for me.

Ryobi chainsaw magneto gap


The gap needs to be as narrow as possible without any actual rubbing of the rotor against the magneto. The spacing is not as critical as with spark plugs or points (remember them?) since unlike those gaps there is no spark jumping across this gap.

Generally, as long as the magnetic field is strong enough, the magneto will produce the necessary spark at the spark plug. The closer the magnets are to the coil, the stronger the magnetic field will be across the coil, and therefore the stronger and hotter the spark.

I have replaced magnetos and they are simple to install, and almost impossible to mess up if you do it this way. All you need is a piece of thin cardboard (not corrugated). I use a glossy business card without raised lettering (so it slides easily), or the like.

1) Rotate the flywheel so that the magnets are NOT positioned in front of the magneto, then loosen both screws of the magneto so it can move freely.

2) Insert the business card between the magneto and the flywheel such that the glossy side of the business card faces the rotor.

3) Then BEND the business card back over each side of the magneto (in other words away from the flywheel) so it stays fixed and can not move from side to side when you rotate the rotor.

4) Then while pinching the magneto and ends of the business card tight between your fingers, rotate the flywheel to position the magnets directly in line with the two sides of the magneto.

Note: The magnets will grab the magneto and try to move it. As long as the slippery side of the business card is facing the rotor and you haven't removed the screws, it should move fairly easily.

Since the magnets want to pull tight to the magneto, but the business card thickness is the same across the entire surface, this gives you an even spacing between both sides of the magneto and the rotor. Essentially, the magnets on the rotor do all the work for you. with regard to alignment. As long as the magnets (flat shiny polished square surfaces on the outer rim of the rotor) align directly with the two faces of the magneto, the alignment is automatic.

5) Once you have the magneto and rotor in perfect alignment, cinch down both screws in an alternating method, first just to where they start to grab, and then back and forth a few times until they are firmly tightened.

6) Now, unfold the flaps of the business card and let it move with the rotor instead. You should be able to rotate the rotor away from the magneto and the business card should slip out easily. It may stay where it was or it may slide out from the magneto - either way will work.

7) Once past the magnets, the business card should come out. You may have to move the rotor back and forth gently a few times to get it to come free. When you are done, the magneto should be in perfect alignment with the face of the rotor and the rotor should spin freely without any rubbing.

8) Confirm the above and then reassemble and go cut some trees.

I have a Briggs & Stratton Sovereign 375 engine model no 1OD902 type 0129B1 code 03012751. No spark at all - any ideas please. Had the flywheel off - that's as far as I got. Bob


Bob, if you have the flywheel back on, first check the air gap between the magneto (ignition armature) at the magnets on the flywheel (a common business card works well for this) then unplug the small wire from the magneto and check for spark, if you have spark, repair the kill switch and/or wire, if NO spark, replace the magneto.
If you remove the spark plug, you can hand spin the flywheel fast enough to ascertain spark

Lawnboy gold series 10400, sn 4906038, failure to fire. Possible bad magneto. Looking for replacement part and magneto settings; i.e., gap between flywheel and the magneto. Any other tips appreciated.


You should be able to get a new magneto at any local lawnmower repair shop. The proper gap can be achieved using a standard business card. When you get the new mqagneto, turn the magnets on the flywheel to the opposite side away from the magneto, replace the magneto pulling it all the way back away from the flywheel and "snug" 1 or both of the mounting screws.
Now, turn the flywheel magnet to where it is centered under the magneto, insert the business card between the flywheel and magneto and loosen the screw you tightened earlier. Magneto will pull down tight to the magnet. Tighten both screws then rotate the flywheel to remove the business card
