Should the coil and flywheel touch?

Wouldn't have thought so as the fly wheel spins it will wear away anything that it touches. You will need to adjust the position of the coil away from fly wheel.

Lawn mower turns but no spark on murray 12.5 ride on

If you put a new plug in it then sounds like your coil went out,or if it has set for a very long time the coil will lose ground and wont fire,but if just happened recently then most likely your coil has went out and need to pull top off the engine then loosen bolt that holds flywheel on and with any luck it will come off with no troubles and the coil will have a wire plugged into it that is your stop wire for your ignition then there is 2 bolts that hold coil on I think they are 1/4 in loosen them take off coil and when you put new coil on you will have to set the gap,on single cylinders I set the gap at 10 thousand and I do it with 2 gauges so they are both perfectly set from the fly wheel plug your black wire back on and put back together as you took it apart good luck!

Why does my chain saw lose power and shut off as soon as it gets hot.can't restart until it cools off.

Check coil pic up or the electrical pick up in the pull string housing. Remove that and u will see the fly wheel next to that is the electrical pick up .look at fly wheel make sure magnets are clean surface ,they are in the fly wheel itself.after that remove coil and clean surface that faces fly wheel. Using a match book cover place it between fly wheel and coil ,make sure it moves but not falls out snug ,tighten coil screws and remove match book cover. If it dose it again re place coil look for small engine shop in your area and the can help get u a new one .weak spark means coil,sparkplug

Have 250 stihl chainsaw set gap on coil with business card the other side hang up set that side the other side hang up will a new coil help are is it the fly wheel?

Hello there, the correct 'air gap' between the magnet and the ignition unit is around 0.25mm (or 0.010") Use a feeler gauge to achieve this setting and use the power of the magnet to sandwich the feeler gauge between the magnet and both poles of the ignition unit. There should be sufficient clearance around the mounting screws to achieve this. If your still having problems check for sideways and up / down movement of the flywheel / crankshaft. If you have movement here and it isn't a loose flywheel on the crankshaft, the main bearings are probably shot.

Briggs & stratton 206cc no spark

Hi Norman i know it sounds stupid but have you put the coil back on the right way? Also have you set the points and cleaned the little brass nipple under the fly wheel? If this is still failing it may be that the flywheel key is worn.

When installing coil how far do you have to set it away from the fly wheel

Why is your coil by the flywheel. That's usually the starter. You may need to use one or two shims that you can get at autozone. Shouldn't take more. Depends on if your starter grinds at start-up. Sometimes you only need to replace the starter. Are you talking about some kind of pick-up coil. Then that's different. I really don't understand just the word coul.

It has no spark comes out of the wire, suspect ignition coil is the problem

Hi constant12v...
You have not ignition coil on this mower, but you do have an ignition module under the fly wheel, or besides of the fly wheel that you will need to replace.
Also sand the flywheel where the magnets are to insure the surfaces are free of rust or corrosion.When you install the new iginition module be sure to have the clearance between the flyweel and the module the same as the old can also use a paper match book cover to set the clearance.

What distance should the coil be positioned away from the fly wheel

it dont realy matter how far away it is,, but most bikes have the coil just under the fule tank,, thats about 1.5 feet from the fly wheel
the coil wont be upset if its bolted right above the fly wheel as there is nothing in it that the fly wheel can upset,,,,any magnets are all inside the fly wheel and will have little to no efect on the coil at all
