TecumsehThis company went out of business a long time ago. Chances are you wont find it at any parts store but you may find it on line thru ebay or craigslist.

How do you set the gap between the coil and the flywheel


Usually you loosen the coil and it'll move in or out a little bit. Use feeler gauge on both sides of the coil. Afterwards slowly turn engine over to ensure nothing is hitting

Can you replace the whole spark plug wire on the coil on 8hp Tecumseh without changing the coil


Not unless you cut the wire and splice a new piece on, which I would not recommend. A new coil should cost you less than $20 and is not hard to replace. See the attached YouTube video on how to do it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6bQrNr4lv0

If you have changed sparkplug and coil and cleaned flywheel, you probably have a kill wire problem. Disconnect kill wire from coil and try again.

8HP Tecumseh with no spark


Check the gap between the coil and the flywheel. You can fold a dollar bill over a few times (3 or 4 layers thick) , place it against the flywheel , **** the coil up to it , and then tighten down the coil. This will give you a good clearance between the coil and flywheel and promote good spark.

Essentially I am suggesting you use the folded dollar bill to set the coil to flywheel distance/gap.

If it still doesn't work, I am at a loss. Is this a multi cylinder engine ? If so , does it have points or electronic ignition ?

No spark


Hi
You need a special tester to test a coil off of the engine. If you take iit to a small engine shop they can test it for you. You can test it on the engine. First clean the surface of the coil where it mounts to the engine. Reinstall the coil. Do not install the kill wire to the coil. Install a inline spark tester and crank engine if you still don't have any spark the coil is bad.
