What is the coil gap on a Briggs and Stratton 500e series 140 cc engine


If you are replacing the magneto with a new one it should have come with a shim to use. If it is lost or you're resetting the old one a gap of .010" will work.

What is the correct gap between the magneto core and magnet?


The gap is .010. You can also use a card to gap the coil and after you tighten the coil and remove the card turn the flywheel by hand one revolution to make sure the magnet does not rub on the flywheel.

Wiring on an old 5hp Briggs and Stratton engine


The "heavy wire" connects to the spark plug. It should have a plug connector attached. There are 2 small wires. One of them grounds to the engine block (probably through one of the screws that holds the magneto in place). The other wire goes to the condensor/capacitor.
