What is the air gap between the coil and flywheel on Ryobi 700r weed trimmer


Set it at about .010"-.012". That is about the thickness of a standard business card (which many use to do just this same repair).

How can I trouble shoot the kill switch on a echo weed eater. The spark plug is good as it has ben tested on another machine. There is no spark and seems the kill switch should be the next obvious thing...


Check the kill switch terminals with a continuity tester (small multi-meter will work). If the switch is Ok and there is no spark, take off the engine cover and check the "air-gap" between the magnets in the flywheel and the ignition module legs.The closer the better, but you want about a ,008-.010"gap there...about the width of a standard sized business card. Metal feeler gauges "stick" of course to the magnet area in the flywheel and throw off clearance sensitivity. Try it with a business card. If not in range, then loosen the coil screws, double the card over, and let the magnets pull the coil legs into the card...retighten screws and check for spark.

Igntion coil on echo trimmer went bad, replaced with echo blower coil . there is a small difference in design but now have ignition. Engine still won't start.


Make sure the air-gap between your used blower coil module and the magnets on the Echo's flywheel is about the thickness of a regular business card. That is about .010"-.016". The gap HAS to be present in order for the module to produce the spark.

AHOW TO SET AIR GAP ON TB 70 SS


The Torx head screws holding the coil in place have to be loosened. They may be tough as sometimes when assembled, the factory uses Threadlocker on them (alongwith the cylinder bolts). If you have removed covers and are at the flywheel/coil area rotate the flywheel till the magnets in it line up with the leg or legs on the coil. Insert a business card (folded in two) in between and let the magnets "draw" the coil onto the card. The proper gap is about .010-.014" or so. The closer the better. Make sure to tighten the coil screws extra tight. You can coat them with some thread lock if you choose so they can't vibrate loose. The business card gap works on most small engines.

25 cc craftsman weed trimmer.\r\nNot getting spark


If you're sure it's not getting spark, the first thing to check would be the "air-gap" setting between the magnets on the flywheel and the ignition coil module . The correct setting basically only requires the use of a regular business card and is around .010"-.014" If there is an air gap present, check it and then you can move on to diagnose the coil module ( they don't go bad very often) if necessary.

How to replace coil on stihl fs85 weed trimmer


Remove the starter & cylinder cover and look for the coil mounted next to the flywheel. Remove the 2 screws holding it to the cylinder and cafefully pull the wires through the clips that hold them to the block. Install the new coil in the reverse order and set the air gap between the flywheel and the coil with a business card. Let the magnets on the flywheel pull the coil towards it with the business card in between. Tighten the screws and spin the flywheel to remove the card. Reassemble the stater and blower housing.

Pull the module back, tighten it up and align magnets on flywheel with module. Put a business car between them and loosen the module. It will move against card. Tighten the screws there. It's set.
