Should be around .013 to .014. turn flywheel until magnets face magneto insert your feeler gauge and loosen magneto screws...let the magneto stick to the feeler gauge and the magnets... re-tighten the screws, remove feeler gauge, and you should be set...hope this helps. ;-D

What is magneto air gap on 25cc gas homelite blower?


It should be set at about the thickness of a standard business card. That is .010"-.012" I usually just double over the card and let the magnets on the flywheel pull in the coil legs and lock the screws down at that point. Non-metal feeler gauges are helpful here because of the magnets if you choose to go that route.

Homelite U2T608 edger/trimmer will not start. New plug gaped properly. Dropped carb, dissembled and cleaned out all ports. Fuel is flowing and is new. Motor wont even "cough." Suggestions?


Check the magneto for spark. Remove the plug and reinsert the wire and hold it against the engine as you pull the starter. You should get a nice, blue spark. If you don't see one, the magneto to flywheel air gap may need adjusting or the coil module is bad (rare). You basically need good compression, fresh fuel, good clean air intake, and a strong spark to get it to "pop." I realize you may know these things, but, most people are unaware of the .010"-014" air gap required between the magnets on the flywheel and the legs on the coil module. Disassembly is required to get to it and you take the same steps you would if you wanted to fix the pull rope. A standard business card has about the proper clearance needed between the aformementioned parts. Post back if needed. I am here to help.

The gap on my 18 year old Homelite ST-185 is 0.025. Since they are still using simple and reliable magnetos, yours should be the same.

I need the gap setting for the coil on my homelite weedeater 25CC 'Easy Reach'


As small as you can without fouling the flywheel. It should work with anything up to a 20 thou gap, so if you set it to 10 thou and no spark, then you need to replace the coil..
