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!

Need to do a tune-up. what are the settings on the spark plug and on the magneto gap.


The plug gap is 0.020". Use a thin business card for the ignition module gaps--turn the flywheel so that the magnets are under the module poles, insert the card into the gaps, loosen the module screws, and allow the poles to contact the magnets. Tighten the screws, and turn the flywheel somewhat to release the card. Then turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the gaps don't close further. With a fresh spark plug, the spark should be blue and snappy. Hope this helps!

Saw will idle but when you give it gas it cuts off


Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the condition of the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Check the spark plug for blue, snappy spark. If weak looking, try a fresh plug gapped 0.020". If still weak looking, remove the left engine cover to expose the flywheel and ignition module. Turn the flywheel until the magnets are under the ignition 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, then turn the flywheel somewhat to release the card. Turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the pole gaps don't close up further. Hope this helps!

Poulan 2375le chain saw. just replaced primer bulb, gas lines and diaphram. also has new gas and spark plug. will fire up but wont stay cranked especially when I mash the throttle. please help..


Check the fuel filter, air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Be sure the fuel and oil mix is thoroughly shaken just before filling the tank each time to prevent oil starvation. Set the plug gap to 0.020" and test the spark for being blue and snappy. If weak looking, remove the left side engine cover to expose the flywheel and ignition module. Turn the flywheel so that the magnets are just under the module poles, insert a thin business card into the gaps, loosen the module screws to allow the poles to contact the magnets. Tighten the screws, turn the flywheel somewhat to remove the card, then turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the gaps don't close up further. Replace the cover and retest spark--if ok, try for start. Hope this helps!

What is the gap setting between the ignition module and the flywheel? What is the spark plug gap?


Unsure about your first question as I have had no problems with the ignition module or flywheel as of yet. However the spark plug gap is 0.025 inch

How to tune a sears chain saw that won;t stay running


Check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. If no help, remove the flywheel cover and reset the ignition module pole clearance using a thin business card for a gauge. Turn the flywheel magnets under the module, insert the card into the gaps, loosen the module screws, and allow the module to contact the magnets through the card. Tighten the screws and rotate the flywheel somewhat to release the card, then turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the gap doesn't close further. Try for spark at the plug--it should be blue, and snappy with a fresh plug gapped at 0.020". Hope some of this helps!

No spark


Assuming that you have tried a new plug with no results, remove the flywheel side cover to expose the flywheel and ignition module. Remove the ignition switch wire from the module and try for spark again. If nothing, replace the module. Use a thin business card for the pole gap gauge--place the card between the flywheel magnets and the module, then allow the two parts to stick together. Tighten the screws, then rotate the flywheel to remove the card. Turn the flywheel one full turn and make sure the gap doesn't close up any further. At this point, you should have spark. Set the plug gap at 0.020". 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!

What is the gap for the ignition module on a poulan wild thing chain saw?


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.
