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 flywheel is rotated.

Use a thin business card to set the gap, and have the flywheel magnets under the module while setting it. Normally, you will have to turn the flywheel somewhat to extract the card. Hope this helps!

Rotate the flywheel until the magnets are under the module, insert a thin business card into the pole gaps, loosen the module screws and allow the module to contact the magnets. Tighten the screws and rotate the flywheel somewhat to release the card. Turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the pole gaps don't close further. Hope this helps!

Installed 2 new starting coils, but still won't fire. Get only little spark. Has new spark plug. What else could be wrong?


Use a thin business card for a module gap gauge. Rotate the flywheel magnets under the ignition module, insert the card into the gap, loosen the module screws and allow it to contact the magnets. Tighten the screws again, and rotate the flywheel to remove the card. Make sure the plug has 0.020" gap. You should have plenty of fire. If not, the flywheel magnets may have gotten weak, or the ignition switch is partially grounded out. Hope this helps!

Craftsman chain saw. Won't restart after running for long time.


First check is for spark at the plug when it won't fire--it should be blue and snappy with a fresh plug set for 0.020" gap. If not, then remove the flywheel side cover, turn the flywheel magnets to underneath the ignition module. Use a thin business card for a gap gauge and insert it into the space between the magnets and the module poles--loosen the screws holding the module to allow the module to stick to the magnets, then re-tighten the screws. Recheck for spark. If now ok, try to start the engine. If this made no difference, then replace the ignition module and use the same install as before. If you originally got good spark, place little fuel mix in the plug hole and retry start--it should at least pop several times. If so, check the fuel filter, air filter and muffler for plugging. Check the condition of all fuel lines. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are all tight. Finally, the carburetor lower diaphragm may be hard or cracked. Make sure the saw body is not getting overly hot-- it may need cleaning with compressed air to recover proper cooling. Hope some of this helps!

Remove the spark plug, lay the base on engine metal, and test for spark which should be blue and snappy. If nothing, try a new plug and retest. If still nothing, remove the left engine cover to expose the flywheel and ignition module. Check the module pole gap by using a thin business card for a gauge--turn the flywheel magnets under the module while holding the gauge in place, loosen the module screws and allow the module to snap to the magnets. Tighten the screws again and rotate the flywheel while turning the card to get it free. Turn the flywheel one turn to check that the gap doesn't get closer at any time. Recheck for spark. If still nothing, remove the grounding wire that goes to the ignition switch from the module and retry again. If still nothing, replace the ignition module. If you got spark in the first test, squirt some fuel into the plug hole and attempt start--if you get a few pops, concentrate on the fuel system. Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the condition of the fuel lines and primer button (if equipped). Make sure the carburetor is tight to the engine and all fasteners are tight. Hope this helps!

Ignition coil gap:
An index or business card is a good gap tool. Remove the plug, rotate until magnetic attraction pulls coil and card tight to flywheel, tighten the coil screws. Rotate flywheel until magnetic attraction eases, remove card, rotate a couple of revolutions and ensure nothing drags or contacts flywheel. HTH

Poulan saw wont start has spark and fuel


Look for a pinched/bare stop-switch wire (I assume that you don't have spark now). Also, check the ignition coil core gap to the flywheel magnets (I use card stock to set the gap). Make sure the plug wire was not damaged again.
