That's easy man! You will always hear, "You sir, need to gap this or that at EXACTLY .00071542 inches per square meter".

The actual "poor boy fix"-

Put your magneto back on there, and stick a business card from your wallet in between it and the rotor. Let the magneto pull itself to it, you center it, and give it just a hair of breathing room (to slide the card back out). Tighten 'er down, and you got it.

1.- If you can't pull the card out, it is too tight.

2.- If you pull the card out easily, too loose.

3.- JUST enough to pull it out, and have it drag just a bit on the way out is JUST ENOUGH!

Remember, on 4-strokes, they ARE forgiving, and can do miracles even if you try your best to destroy them.

Not getting spark in craftsman tractor lawnmower


How old is the engine? Does it have electronic ignition or points? Check the engine stop wire where it attaches to the throttle control on the engine. Make sure it is not grounding out. Has the magneto been removed? That is the Y shaped part behind the flywheel, where the spak plug wire attaches. If the mag has benn removed, it needs to be re-adjusted. The correct gap is .020 of an inch, about the thickness of a matchbook. This gap is measured between the two legs of the mag and the flywheel. I hope this helps, good luck.

What is the magneto gap for a 6HP Briggs & Stratton 12H802 series engine?


Briggs lists it as .006 - .010 on this 6 HP L-head engine. The .010 width can easily be attained by using a standard sized business card as a feeler gauge (and it doesn't stick to the magnets in the flywheel). I double up the card, loosen the coil and let the magnets in the flywheel draw the pickup legs in until they press on the card, tighten up the retaining screws (threadlocker is optional) and your air gap is set.
