You can set the air gap with a business card or a feeler gauge. From .020 to .045 is correct. Just make sure you slowly turn the flywheel and it never touches the pickup after you set the gap.

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.

Engine does not start. Starter & solenoid work fine. Checked air filter, fuel filter, fuel level, level in choke position. Plug is kind of flooded. Increased plug gap slightly. There is no spark....


Most small engines use a flywheel with a magnet embedded in it and an ignition coil with a core that sits a few thousandths away from the flywheel. Ignition coils are common failures probably because they come from our wonderful Chinese friends. They have demolished all US manufacturers. If you replace the coil, use some gauge to measure the gap between coil core and the flywheel magnet surface before removing the old coil. Otherwise you may spend a little time using trial & error to get the engine running again.
If your engine is a Briggs and Stratton, you can find very complete maintenance downloadable information on their website. This will pertain to the engine only, not the mower.
Dunno about Tecumseh, haven't had much need for service info on those.

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

What is the magneto gap for a 6HP Briggs & Stratton 12H802 series engine?


Briggs lists it as .006 - .010 on this 6 HP L-head engine. The .010 width can easily be attained by using a standard sized business card as a feeler gauge (and it doesn't stick to the magnets in the flywheel). I double up the card, loosen the coil and let the magnets in the flywheel draw the pickup legs in until they press on the card, tighten up the retaining screws (threadlocker is optional) and your air gap is set.

No spark


You will need to remove the recoil cover, flywheel, and the cover over the points and condensor. Buy a new set of points and condensor and install them. Turn the engine over until it opens the points up and set them at .020 in. with a feeler guage. Re-assemble and make sure you tighten the flywheel tight enough or it will shear off the flywheel key. Also, before removing the flywheel check the gap between the magnet on the flywheel and the coil that the plug wire comes from. Also, make sure nothing is grounded out. (wire from points to coil).

Good luck,

Bart

I have a simplicity model 4211 lawn tractor with no spark.


terry, check for kill line on motor to see if grounded out,you can remove from ground clip.
also you say you checked points??????
check for flywheel to coil pickup clearance .
point type coil to flywheel the airgap should be 25- 1000ths with feeler guage. on electronic ignition coil to flywheel pickup the air gap should be set @ 10-1000ths with feeler guage. hope this solves your problem..........lemmee kno.....chris

No spark


If your engine is 11 years old it will have points @condensor under flywheel there are two wires coming from the condensor one goes to the coil and the other goes to a ground switch thats most of the time on the throotle linkage,if that wire is grounded against metal there will be not spark . the gap between coil and flywheel is 10 thousands (you can use an index card to set it .

Chipper won't start


what engine do you have im guessing a briggs & stratton was it running previously or sitting awhile it can be a few things the flywheel key could be sheered or the points are bad or the flywheel & coil are rusted check flywheel & coil to see if rusted if so take coil off mild sand paper like 80 grit i beleave clean both to get the right gap between flywheel & coil turn the flywheel alittle bit so the magnets won't touch coil or if coil still of set flywheel to where it will touch magnets fat peice of sand paper not folded but flat sand paper about .020 gap between magnet & coil if you place sand paper against the flywheel magnet then set coil against sand paper & magnet that should give you 0.020 gap & it should start if not e-mail me i will guide you through everything to get it started

Honda 5.5 hp air comp. no spark wont run


Most honda engines have an oil sensor that prevents the engine from starting if the oil level is low or oil is dirty. Test coil by disconnecting oil sensor wire. With sensor disconnected coil should fire. If still no fire, check kill wire for short. If still no spark, coil may need to be replaced. enjoy
