Usually a playing card is sufficient. Set it and make sure it doesn't rub.

My riding mower won't start, new starter spark plug and fuel filter. Now what?

You did not post any information about the motor. There is a specific gap between the magneto and the flywheel and also the flywheel has a woodruff key to make sure the timing is correct. Check for spark, check gap on magneto and check magneto if you don't have spark.

Whats the air gap on a craftsman 247.290000

.012 or Easy way to set that is to put a piece of electrical tape over the magnet on the fly wheel and rotate the fly wheel till it is under the magneto and then loosen the magneto bolts till you can slide the magneto up against the tape, Tighten the bolts, rotate the flywheel out of position and remove the tape. Rotate the fly wheel by hand to check for free clearance all the way around.

How do i adjust the magneto gap on a Troy-Bilt TB70ss string trimmer.

That is it. It is about that way for anything in the area of the clutch and flywheel. It is a pita but the nature of string trimmer in general.

Dirty flywheel. Gap between flywheel and magneto too wide. Pull flywheel cover check for excessive rust on outside edge of fly, then check magneto for same. Check gap, then examine all wiring.

25cc Craftsman line trimmer: - will not start. - no spark across the gap of the plug - plug shows no corrosion.

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
normally on these when you dont recieve a spark and you are 100% sure that the spark plug is good than the only thing left to check is the ignition coil
It is what the plug wire is connected to kind of a square or round part these are nortorious for going out in small engines this is a 35 dollar part ok?
thee if this does not do it check the on off switch for continuity
Then finaly Check the flywheel cover, the magneto gap and starter coil if there's still no spark.

I get no spark when I attempt to start my Craftsman convertable gas trimmer. I replaced the spark plug but still nothing.

The plug must be grounded to the engine when you check it. Don't check it with it just hanging in the air.This could damage the coil. You may need to check the air gap between the flywheel magnets and the coil module. It should be about .012-.016" or the thickness of a standard business card. Getting to the magneto system will require some dismantling of covers etc.
