0.010-0.012" or a 'quick tip': you can use the cardboard of the box the coil came in, or the parts tag that may have been attached to it. Those should be close enough to get you going.

Changed ignition module on toro gas blower but now pull cord won't move. Ideas for correcting?

Check ignition again. Gap between that and the flywheel may be off. Or you may have forgotten the long spacer on the flywheel shaft.

Ho to get to the toro 6.0 magnito

The ignition module is bolted to the front of the flywheel. Im going to assume this is a pushmower and not a leaf blower... Remove the plastic top cover, remove the fuel tank, disconnect the dipstick tube, leave it in the seat but rotate the stay out of the way. Tie the engine kill bail to the handle- run position. disconnect the spark plug wire. remove the flywheel shroud / starter assembly. You will see the flywheel, intake tube and the ignition module right there on top of the motor. Armature air gap is 20 thousandths ( good quality thick business card works good). Set the gap with the magnet faceing the module.

How to set the ign. modualer on leaf blower

You have to set an "air-gap" on the ignition module between the legs of it and the magnets in the flywheel. Use a standard size business card as your "feeler gauge." Fold it in two. Place it in between the legs of the module and the flywheel. Turn the flywheel until the magnets line up with the coil legs and let the magnets draw the module into it. Tighten the hold down screws. Remove the business card. Your "air-gap" is now set at approximately .010" Closer is better, wider is not.

What is the gap on the home lite might blower ignition coil

A clean and dry business card is just about the perfect thickness for the recommended .006" gap. Rotate the magnet of the flywheel around to the module side. Put the card between the module (coil) and the magnet. Allow the module to tighten against the magnet, then tighten the screws that secure it to the crankcase. Rotate the flywheel to remove the card. Test for contact by rotating the flywheel. Check for any lateral play in the crankshaft bearing by trying to wiggle the flywheel side to side. There should be no play in the bearing.
Good luck!

I cannot start the blower/vacuum after replacing the ignition module.

You need to use a thin business card to set the pole gap at the module--access the flywheel/module area again and turn the flywheel magnets under the module poles. Insert a thin business card into the pole gaps, loosen the module mounting screws and allow the module to contact the magnets. Tighten the screws and rotate the flywheel somewhat to release the card. Rotate the flywheel one full turn to make sure the gaps don't close up any further. Remove the ignition switch wire from the module body for a test, and try for spark--it should be blue and snappy on a clean plug gapped at 0.020". Hook the ignition switch wire back to the module. Hope this helps!

Craftsman leaf blower wont start

The air gap for the ignition coil core to flywheel is adjustable on some engines and the gap does vary.
On a Stihl, I used a matchbook cover first, then doubled it and got the engine to start. That amounts to 8-10/1000ths (0.008-0.010") as measured with a digital caliper after-the-fact.
I'm troubleshooting another engine currently from a McCulloch Airstream IV that only has ~12 hours and no spark but the coil measures roughly as it should; around 1K Ohms. Was surprised to find the company went bankrupt in '99. Another one killed by Asians and fairly poor design.

I have a Poulan BVM200VS gas blower. The plug won't fire. It has a new spark plug and a new ignition module. The kill switch is good. What little wiring there is seems to be good. If you spin the flywheel...

It is possible that the gap between the module and the flywheel is not correct. This gap is usually set with some thin card stock or possibly a playing card.

It is important that this gap is not too large.
