SOURCE: stihl bg 55 blower runs good for 5 min. then loses power

1) carburetor gaskets/diaphragms may need to be replaced

2) ignition coil may be breaking down when hot

3) check compression when cold, then after it stops, when hot

4) could have a vacuum/pressure leak

*I would investigate carb first

I don't have much experience with Stihl products but I do have a couple of disc cutters, both of which had a short life and suffered piston damage.

I suspect the air cleaner isn't as efficient as it should be.

Coil air gap setting on stihl BG 85 C blower

The box the coil came in should have a paper card for setting the gap. It isnt written on the is the paper! Put it between the coil and the flywheel and bolt it up! If there isnt a gap paper in the box use a paper business card in its place. The stock gap size of 0.0125 inches is virtually the same as the 12 point paper used for a business cards in the US. I would recommend checking spark before reassembly just to be sure everything is right. Be safe and good luck!

Air gap setting ignition coil

if you didnt adjust it you dont need to know
it is the gap between the rotor for the pickup coil and the coil pickup face
the ignition coil makes energy from the rotator to feed the spark plug

you need to tell us what is up
your question is incomplete and lacks details

Bg86c stihl blower no spark new spark plug new coil gapped right take ground wire off still nothing

Sounds like a tricky one. Have you checked the magetism/functioning of the flywheel.? Tracking back the problem by having a new spark plug and coil would next point you to the flywheel. Coil to flywheel gap should be 0.25 feeler guage.

Hope this proves useful. :)
