Use a clean and dry business card to set the gap. It is just about perfect for the .006" setting.
Good luck!

Air gap for coil


Assume you are asking for the air gap between the flywheel and the ignition coil?

Obtaining the correct gap from the manufacturer's specifications is best because although in theory a close gap is desirable for efficiency, flywheels grow as the engine heats up and a large flywheel can grow quite a lot.

Brass feeler gauges are best for setting air gaps as they are none-magnetic. A typical air gap would be in the region of 10 to 14 thou.

No spark on Huskvarna Rancher 55


disconnect any and all kill wires going to the coil... if you still have no spark then it can ONLY be the coil... if this produces spark then you have a kill system problem or your flywheel has no magnetism... and this can be the only solution as you do not have points/condenser or things just went full derp

Gap coil on ppb 330 poulan pro


First and foremost ppb330 is a model number for a grass line trimmer, gas model.
Second, I am unsure what you are asking. Gap coil?? Do you need the spark plug gap for your chainsaw? That gap is .025.

I hope this helps. If not, please re-post with the correct model number for you chainsaw.

John deere 110 engine cranks but no spark


Check that the ignition coil kill wire is not shorted to the frame.
Check coil to flywheel gap. A business card between coil and flywheel will set correct gap.
Coil could be bad or ignition switch is not releasing the kill wire in Run/Start positions.

Ignition mystery! 1994 GMC Suburban 2500 5.7 mtr. No spark to spark plugs. Have spark from coil to distributor. Have changed coil wire, cap, rotor, ignition module, and coil. have 12.5 volts going to...


I guess you could have the ignition analyzed on an oscilloscope. Maybe a tech could see something then.
I always heard the only gap was the spark plug gap-the rotor has no gap-are you sure you got the correct rotor? And does it touch the top distributor cap coil wire tower?

Let us know. It is a mystery worthy of a solution.

My 5 hp briggs stopped running. No spark. took recoil off to reveal a rotten coil with wires rotted off. cleaned off the flywheel and replaced the coil with one from Napa. The engine does not have points...


Did you set the Air Gap correctly, it should be .020 inch. If the Air Gap is correct and you cleaned the pickup magnets, you should be getting spark. I have different color coded plastic sheets of the correct thickness to set the Air Gap on different engines. You could use a use a side panel from a plastic soda bottle (Mt Dew, Pepsi, ect) Place it between the Flywheel and the Armature/Ign Coil. Allow the magnets on the Flywheel to pull the Armature/Ign Coil together and then tighten the Armature/Ign Coil bolts. Carefully turn the Engine while pulling the plastic from between the Armature/Ign Coil Pickups. The Armature/Ign Coil is now properly set.

Generall speaking for a gasoline engine to run you need 3 things. (1) Spark, (2) Gas and (3) Air.

I hope this is helpful. UAW 974

CHANGING SPARK PLUGS. WHAT IS CORRECT GAP? WHAT IS


To change plugs you need to remove the coil first. This engine has a coil for each plug.The plug is way down in the head. Use a deep well socket and an extension to remove the plug.Blow out the area around the plug with an air compressor before you remove the plug to keep debris out of the engine. The plug gap is .052 to .056 and the torque spec is 15 pound feet or 177 pound inches. Use some anti-seize on the plugs

Replaced coil an still no fire out of wire kill wire is not hooked up


Hello,
My name is Dane and I am going to help you solve your problem. Ok, there aren't many things that can cause you a problem here. First, I have to say to check that spark plug. Make sure it's correctly gapped and not cracked or fouled. Now, check that the flywheel is clean and rustfree. Make sure you have set the coil gap correctly.

To set the gap for the coil, get a regular business card and use it as a feeler gauge. Turn the flywheel so the flywheel magnets are away from the coil. Loosen the bolts to the coil, and pull the coil back, making the gap as large as possible. Rotate the flywheel so the magnets are next to the coil. Slide the business card in between the coil and the flywheel magnets and loosen the coil bolts. If your coil has 2 legs, make sure the business card is under them both. Make sure the coil is even and just snug against the card. Now tighten down your coil bolts and spin the flywheel to remove the business card. Turn the flywheel at least 1 complete turn and make sure it doesn't contact the coil. You're done!!! Put it back together and try it again. It's not unheard of to get a bad new coil. Don't think just because it's new it has to be good.
Well, I think this should get your problem fixed. Thank you! Dane

2004 KIA OPTIMA WON'T START AFTER SPARK PLUGS WERE CHANGES


HI. There are several areas of concern here. I will list them below. Check all areas stated in the list for faults.

Possible cuases:

1. Incorrect firing order set. On the 2.0, 2.4 and 2.7 engines. These engines are equipped with a distributor-less ignition system. This system incorporates a coil pack assembly, along with wire sets. In order for the assembly to fire correctly, the order of the wires must be set to the proper sequence. if not, the engine will not turn over, or start correctly. Make sure your firing order is correct, and make sure you have not placed a particular wire set into the wrong cylinder. I will post a picture of the correct firing order for your engine, below this list, shortly.


2. Incorrect spark plug gapping procedure. If the new spark plugs were gapped incorrectly, this will not allow for proper spark, thus, preventing optimal combustion, due to lack of fire. Check the spark plug gap using a wire gap gauge, and adjust if necessary. The gap should be 0.039-0.043 in. (1.0-1.1mm)

3. Failed coil pack assembly. This will be the worst case scenario. The coil pack supplies the necessary current that fuels each plug. The current is transferred, via wire sets.This will be the culprit if all the above areas are proven to be operational, and in good shape.

4. Failed wire sets. Replace the wire sets if faults are found at the connector at the ignition coil pack, or at the plug boot.



NOTE*
In order to provide the correct firing order for your engine, i will need the engine size and liter information, if possible. Please post this information, asap. Thanks..
