SOURCE: what is the air gap between the coil and flywheel

Set it at about .010"-.012". That is about the thickness of a standard business card (which many use to do just this same repair).

25 cc craftsman weed trimmer.\r\nNot getting spark

If you're sure it's not getting spark, the first thing to check would be the "air-gap" setting between the magnets on the flywheel and the ignition coil module . The correct setting basically only requires the use of a regular business card and is around .010"-.014" If there is an air gap present, check it and then you can move on to diagnose the coil module ( they don't go bad very often) if necessary.

How to replace coil on stihl fs85 weed trimmer

Remove the starter & cylinder cover and look for the coil mounted next to the flywheel.

Install the new coil in the reverse order and set the air gap between the flywheel and the coil with a business card. Let the magnets on the flywheel pull the coil towards it with the business card in between. Tighten the screws and spin the flywheel to remove the card. Reassemble the stater and blower housing.
