SOURCE: what is the gap setting on a poulan pp4218av chain saw

You need something non-magnetic. Place a business or index card between the fly wheel and coil, rotate until the magnetic attraction pulls everything tight together. Tighten the coil screws, rotate the flywheel until the attraction eases and remove the card. Ensure nothing contacts when flywheel is rotated.
Card stock is usually 0.0085 - 0.0095"
If you still have no spark after assembly please reply below and I will happily assist you. HTH

You should use a 25000 brass feeler guage bit as a rule a piece of cardboard from a ciggerette package will work just fine.

No fire to plug need to test coil


Lawmowers have a coil mounted along side the flywheel. You have to remove pull cord assembly, then remove flywheel nut. now the coil is exposed. most of the time rust on the flywheel is the only problem. Clean with 120 grit sandpaper. Loosen the coil screws so the coil can move in and out, then palce a match-pak carboard flap between the flywheel and the coil and snug down the screws. you should be all set. Now make certain to check the flywheel key to see if it is bent or broken. These keys are made of soft metal to protect the crankshaft from being damaged. So replace the key if damaged or broken. This should solve your problem. To test the coil you either need a ampmeter, or you can pull the cord while holding sparkplug wire 1/2 inch from engine bolt and look fo spark while pulling the rope. Good luck. Don't forget to remove the matchbook from the flywheel after setting gap, which is .010 thousands of an inch.

Put new coil need how to set the coil


For an external coil, the air gap should be 0.3mm,slacken the fixing screws, place a suitable feeler gauge between the coil laminates and the flywheel, turn the flywheel so as the feeler gauge is sandwiched between the coil laminates and the flywheel manets, now tighten the fixing screws.

My 5 hp briggs stopped running. No spark. took recoil off to reveal a rotten coil with wires rotted off. cleaned off the flywheel and replaced the coil with one from Napa. The engine does not have points...


Did you set the Air Gap correctly, it should be .020 inch. If the Air Gap is correct and you cleaned the pickup magnets, you should be getting spark. I have different color coded plastic sheets of the correct thickness to set the Air Gap on different engines. You could use a use a side panel from a plastic soda bottle (Mt Dew, Pepsi, ect) Place it between the Flywheel and the Armature/Ign Coil. Allow the magnets on the Flywheel to pull the Armature/Ign Coil together and then tighten the Armature/Ign Coil bolts. Carefully turn the Engine while pulling the plastic from between the Armature/Ign Coil Pickups. The Armature/Ign Coil is now properly set.

Generall speaking for a gasoline engine to run you need 3 things. (1) Spark, (2) Gas and (3) Air.

I hope this is helpful. UAW 974

Replaced coil an still no fire out of wire kill wire is not hooked up


Hello,
My name is Dane and I am going to help you solve your problem. Ok, there aren't many things that can cause you a problem here. First, I have to say to check that spark plug. Make sure it's correctly gapped and not cracked or fouled. Now, check that the flywheel is clean and rustfree. Make sure you have set the coil gap correctly.

To set the gap for the coil, get a regular business card and use it as a feeler gauge. Turn the flywheel so the flywheel magnets are away from the coil. Loosen the bolts to the coil, and pull the coil back, making the gap as large as possible. Rotate the flywheel so the magnets are next to the coil. Slide the business card in between the coil and the flywheel magnets and loosen the coil bolts. If your coil has 2 legs, make sure the business card is under them both. Make sure the coil is even and just snug against the card. Now tighten down your coil bolts and spin the flywheel to remove the business card. Turn the flywheel at least 1 complete turn and make sure it doesn't contact the coil. You're done!!! Put it back together and try it again. It's not unheard of to get a bad new coil. Don't think just because it's new it has to be good.
Well, I think this should get your problem fixed. Thank you! Dane

How do you set the gap between the coil and the flywheel, what is the gap on a 4hp snowblower briggs&statton


Hello,
My name is Dane and I am going to help you solve your problem.
Too set the gap for the coil get a regular buisness card and use it as a feeler gauge. Loosen the bolts to the coil. Rotate the flywheel so the magnets are next to the coil. Slide the buisness card in between the coil and the flywheel magnets and make sure the coil is tight against the card.
Now tighten down your coil bolts and remove the busisness card. Turn the flywheel at least 1 complete turn and make sure it doesn't hit the coil. You're done!!!
Well, I hope I've helped. If you found this information useful, please leave me some THUMBS UP if you think I'm deserving! :-) Thank you! Dane

Oh160170048F engine I removed the coil, now i don't know what the gap should be??


The air gap from the ignition module (coil) to the flywheel can be set with a clean and dry business card. Set the gap to maximum and snug down the bolts. Then rotate the flywheel around so that the magnet is positioned directly in front of the module. Place a business card in the gap, and loosen the bolts. The module will be drawn to the magnet. Tighten the bolts and rotate the flywheel to remove the card.
Good luck!

I need coil and spark plug gap settings for echo hc 1500 type E2 hedge trimmer.


0.026 inch, or 6-8 mm is the plug gap.

The ignition coil air gap range is 0.012 - .016"" or .3 - .4 mm. This is the gap between the flywheel and the ignition coil.

An easy way to gap your coil is use a normal business card between the coil and flywheel, tighten the screws and remove the card.
