How do you adjust the new ignition module?pat.

Depends on the make and model as to the timing gap between the flywheel and the module. without knowing your particular make and model I would you suggest you use a 'business card' between the flywheel and the module to set the timing gap.

How do I set the timing

Are you trying to set the ignition or valve timing ? The ignition timing is factory set and changes with engine rpm - you can set the air gap between the flywheel and the ignition unit which should be around 0.25mm (0.010") Excessive air gap will retard the ignition timing. Unless you\'ve had the engine apart, the valve timing won\'t need re-setting. The valve clearances will need setting from time time and the clearance between valve and rocker is 0.1mm and is adjusted with both valves closed and piston at the top of it\'s stroke - you should replace the gasket and copper washer at the same time.

Set timing on husky 136

The timing is set by the key way in the cranck and the key in the flywheel, you cannot adjust the timing, you can alter the air gap between the ignition module and the flywheel magnets, the gap should be 0.3mm, the key in the flywheel is cast into the flywheel and cannot be replaced.

Set timing on tecumseh 5-H.P. gasoline engine model H50-65371 J

Indications that the motor is out of time: jerks the rope out of your hand when trying to start, pops out the carb, runs but has no power and sounds 'off'.
When assembling the motor a dot on the cam gear and a dot on the crank gear need to be lined up.
If the motor has run correctly before the problem and has not been disassembled then the problem is likely external.
There are no actual timing adjustments. The flywheel key holds the flywheel in the correct position. If it is sheared or partially sheared the timing will be off. Check the flywheel key by removing the flywheel and visually inspecting the flywheel key; replace if not 100%. On assembly be sure the flywheel nut is tight or it will shear the key (again), then set the armature air gap ( gap between ignition module and flywheel magnet) to .020
On older motors the points gap can affect timing also but I dont believe your model has points. The points gap is also .020

I need help not sure how to set the timing on my Husqvarna 225R brush saw.i replaced the coil and now i got no spark, so i need to know how to set the timing can you help?

the timing is set by the flywheel and its key, assuming the key has not sheared the only adjustment that can be done is the air gap between the flywheel and the ignition unit, this should be 0.3mm, be aware there were two different ignition units on this model, the early unit was a Phelon unit and only fitted with a three magnet flywheel, the later machine had a Walbro unit and only fitted with a two magnet flywheel, you cannot mix and match these parts.

How do i set the ignition timing on a husgvarna 24se

There is no such model as a 24se, all Husqvarna models ( other than very old machines ) have electronic ignition, the only adjustment that can be done is to set the air gap between the flywheel and the unit, this should be set at 0.3mm, the timeing is taken care of by the flywheel magnets, the ignition unit core and the flywheel key, none of which is adjustable.

Air cap on ignition module Echo PB-413H blower

The air-gap between the ignition coil module and the magnets of the flywheel is a close tolerance. It is adjusted to about .010"-.012". This is approximately the same as the thickness of a standard size business card. I double the cover and let the magnets on the flywheel (lined up with the coil legs) pull it in tight 9compressing the paper card) and then tighten the adjustment screws. The screws have been known to vibrate loose and the gap would be lost. You can use threadlocker on the screws (optional) or just tighten them down well. Too large an air-gap is bad, but the closer the air-gap, the stronger the spark.

Blower doesnt step up to full power- have changed engine and carb.fuil line is clear with new filter and adjusted.Machine is 6yrs+-am thinking coil needs replacement or gap is wrong.Whats the air gap 010...

The spark plug should be about 0.025" gap. With a fresh plug, the spark should be blue. If fairly weak looking, remove the cover over the flywheel and reset the ignition coil gap. Turn the flywheel magnets to just under the module, insert a thin business card into the gaps, loosen the module screws and let the module contact the magnets through the card. Tighten the screws, then turn the flywheel somewhat to release the card. Turn the flywheel one complete turn to make sure the gaps don't close further. Recheck for hot spark. Check the air filter and muffler for plugging. Hope this helps!
