Question about Garden
Your positive that its spark? I'm not sure how you proved that. How bout gets up to temp the magneto may overheat and stop working, its a 50 dollar or more gamble. Check an automotive store and pick up an "INLINE" neon spark tester. 20 bucks and it works on everything. "Prove your guess" I guess :)

I believe you have a timing problem. Do you remember hitting something hard with your blade? I would say you have sheared your timing key. Order of repair : remove top cover to engine, this may involve gas tank, gas line, oil filler tube. Remove flywheel nut, remove flywheel. Timing key is the small key between flywheel and crankshaft. Timing key may just be dented but it will need to be replaced. Bring it with you, Tecumseh has a few different styles of key depending on engine and year.

You should put it at .020
Are you sure you had spark before you took it apart? If you are not sure, then the Ignition Coil may have went bad. How did it act before you decided to take it apart?

Testimonial: "After I adjusted and put everything back together again it still didn't work and like you indictated it turned out to be a bad ignition coil. "
