A thin business card is just right for setting the gap. Turn the magnets to be under the module poles, loosen the module screws and allow it to stick to the magnets. Tighten the screws, rotate the magnets away and remove the card. If the module is good it should make a snappy blue spark with a new plug. If rotating the flywheel through one revolution causes any core rubbing, the crankshaft may be bent or the flywheel may not be fully seated on the crank shaft. Don't run the engine until this problem is repaired. Hope this helps!

Ignition Coil Test by SmallEng.com
You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You do not have to bend up the electrode.
Ignition module gap
Place a business or index card between the fly wheel and coil, rotate until the magnetic attraction pulls everything tight together. Tighten the coil screws, rotate the flywheel until the attraction eases and remove the card. Ensure nothing contacts when the flywheel is rotated.

SOURCE: how to test ignition module
There are plenty of spark testers on the market, if you want a quick check remove the spark plug, use a new plug with twice the plug gap 0.6mm earth against the cylinder ( away from the opem plug hole ) crank the engine at normal starting speed, if there is a spark the unit is probably fine.
