You should put it at .020
Are you sure you had spark before you took it apart? If you are not sure, then the Ignition Coil may have went bad. How did it act before you decided to take it apart?

Testimonial: "After I adjusted and put everything back together again it still didn't work and like you indictated it turned out to be a bad ignition coil. "
SOURCE: Engine does not start. Starter
Most small engines use a flywheel with a magnet embedded in it and an ignition coil with a core that sits a few thousandths away from the flywheel.
Ignition coils are common failures probably because they come from our wonderful Chinese friends. They have demolished all US manufacturers.
If you replace the coil, use some gauge to measure the gap between coil core and the flywheel magnet surface before removing the old coil. Otherwise you may spend a little time using trial & error to get the engine running again.
If your engine is a Briggs and Stratton, you can find very complete maintenance downloadable information on their website. This will pertain to the engine only, not the mower.
Dunno about Tecumseh, haven't had much need for service info on those.
