SOURCE: craftsman leaf blower wont start
The air gap for the ignition coil core to flywheel is adjustable on some engines and the gap does vary.
On a Stihl, I used a matchbook cover first, then doubled it and got the engine to start. That amounts to 8-10/1000ths (0.008-0.010") as measured with a digital caliper after-the-fact.
I'm troubleshooting another engine currently from a McCulloch Airstream IV that only has ~12 hours and no spark but the coil measures roughly as it should; around 1K Ohms. Was surprised to find the company went bankrupt in '99. Another one killed by Asians and fairly poor design.
