How do I set the magneto timing on a Toro Model 38050 snow blower


all you need to set both points and mag spacing is a ole fashioned pack of matches , 1st remove matches from pack save one match , clean cut end!! with flywheel removed take out 5/32 screw on tin cover inside there will be points and condenser ,(if it's old model ) if not there will be a pick up coil and stator (finned lookin thing) take clean cut match Not the red end but the other end carefully move point arm away and put match in gap let arm go and slowly pull match out , use screw right next to it to adjust till match pulls out easyly with lil friction ! tighten all screws well install cover and screw for it , next obtain new aluminium shaft key , dont reuse old one , carefully install in key way and put flywheel down on shaft , tap once with a rubber mallet to seat it , install shaft nut and lock if it has one , unfold match pack all the way open hold with one hand in place where flywheel edge is flattest and carefully install magneto till it just rubs paper with a light skuff ,tighen all bolts well and install cover, start engine normally !! it should start right there if all your parts are good !! easy hah!!

Have no spark to plugs


Those sensors have no effect on spark. Did you replace the plug, if not remove it hold it against the engine, have someone pull cord, watch for spark. If you have spark then you have a fuel problem. If no spark then after replacing plug, then remove stop wire from magneto side. Pull cord an watch for spark. If no spark then remove housing an flywheel, measure gap between mag an flywheel. Check to make sure magnets are still on flywheel. Call some shop or check a service manual on gap setting. If no spark still you will need to replace the magneto. This is rare an its is more likely a plug that needs replacing. Toro snowblowers are nice machines, this is not a hard fix. Really to tackle this is starting with the plug.

Mtd yardman wont start getting feul no spark detected


if you have no spark check the contact between the flywheel magnet and mag and make sure they are clean and the gap is set ( old school the thickness of a cig. pack) if that doesn't do it check the wire and end for contact. Still no you probably need a new mag

Not getting spark to plug on eagerbeaver 2014


Jeffuxum:

The magneto is probably where the problem is. You'll need to pull the cover off of the motor and check the gap between the magneto and the flywheel. If the bolts holding the magneto have vibrated loose, the gap between the magneto and the flywheel will be incorrect. While you have the motor cover off, check the wiring to make sure you don't have a short in your ignition wiring and clean the air filter. I don't remember what the gap is between the flywheel and magneto, but .010 In. sounds familiar. Both legs of the magneto should be the same distance from the flywheel and they must not touch the flywheel at any point. I have used a matchbook cover between the flywheel and magneto while I tightened the magneto retention screws and it worked.

What should the clearance be betwwen mag and fly wheel toro


The gap should be about .010 (Ten Thousandths of an inch), but truthfully, the way I set it is to loosen the coil bolts and place a shiny business card in between the coil and flywheel. Tighten the coil up snug against the business card and then remove it. This should set the gap close enough to the correct setting for you; done. Hope this helps and best of luck to you.

I have a Toro recycler approx 2 years old. No spark, cleaned flywheel and magneto and its getting gas. Has the primer button on the side for starting. Please help. No key start.


Check to see if there is a wire off under the shroud that will run to the magneto. May have a hole rubbed in it allowing a short. The magneto should not be bad being only 2 years old, but it's possible.

It wont spark at all. No fire. Just put a new spark plug so that's not the issue. This lawnmower is only 1.5 years old. Thanks


Could be magneto bad, wire from magneto bad, ground on magneto bad, or the clearance between the flywheel and the magneto is rusted up if it was outside. Clean flywheel with sandpaper and set magneto gap using a match book flap.

Little spark


check the gap on your plug. .030 is what it should be. also make sure that your
kill cable is working properly and not grounding the engine out.
the gap for you magneto should be set to .010 to .012
loosen up the magneto insert a standard business card or 3x5 card
then turn the flywheel so that the magnet on the flywheel pulls the magneto into it. then tight the magneto mounting screws down. try spark now. always use fresh gas. -no-water- if in doubt throw it out.
gas is BAD after only 30 days.

Starts runs min. or two then stops....


Go to toro.com then click customer care, then click manuals and parts. Type in model no. and download the owners manual. This should get you the spark and flywheel gap. Probably still something in the carb. Some orifices are very hard to find and to clean but they must be clean. Also check for dirt dopper nest in the muffler.
