Question about Garden
It should NOT be touching or scraping. There should be an "air-gap" of approximately .010" between them. This is about the thickness of a standard business card which is commonly used to set the gap, due to the magnetic nature of the flywheel (steel feeler gauges get stuck). Get a card and fold it in two. Then you loosen the hold down bolts (no need to remove them) on the ignition module and slide the card between the pick up legs and the flywheel, Then, you rotate the flywheel until the magnets in it line up with the legs on the module, drawing it into it. Then, tighten the screws, withdraw the folded up business card and recheck the "air-gap." If the machine will start, but won't idle or continue to run, you may have a fuel related issue (carburetor). Please post back for more help. We will see your comment and reply.
