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.

How do I get spark


Make sure the magneto is not grounded and make sure the air gap between the flywheel magnet and magneto is set to specs. If air gap is too wide, it will be difficult for the magneto to produce an efficient spark.

Hello John,
Is your spark weaker on 2nd cylinder? If thats the case I would replace the magneto. If spark is equal on both I would look at valves.I am willing to bet it is valves. I would check valves and adjust gap and try again. You could also set air gap of magneto also, but I think it is valves.

Not getting spark to plug on eagerbeaver 2014


Jeffuxum:

The magneto is probably where the problem is. You'll need to pull the cover off of the motor and check the gap between the magneto and the flywheel. If the bolts holding the magneto have vibrated loose, the gap between the magneto and the flywheel will be incorrect. While you have the motor cover off, check the wiring to make sure you don't have a short in your ignition wiring and clean the air filter. I don't remember what the gap is between the flywheel and magneto, but .010 In. sounds familiar. Both legs of the magneto should be the same distance from the flywheel and they must not touch the flywheel at any point. I have used a matchbook cover between the flywheel and magneto while I tightened the magneto retention screws and it worked.

My Stihl ms361c won't start. Want to check air gap on the magneto.Re-set the timing.How? do I do this?


Pull off the side cover where the cord is.Make sure the keyway in the flywheel is not broke and flywheel has not turned.If flywheel did not turn the timing is fine.Too set the air gap you have to loosen the screws on the magneto .Slip a piece of paper or metal that is .010 thick between magneto and flywheel and turn flywheel until magnet pulls magneto down.tighten screws and reinstall cover.

I NEED TO KNOW THE SPARK PLUG GAP AND MAGNITO GAP FOR A POLAN CHAINSAW MODEL # 2375


Spark plug gap is .025

As for the air gap in-between the flywheel, and magneto, I generally start with a piece of notebook paper in-between them.

After the bolts are snugged down, turn the flywheel by hand to spin the paper out.
