A business card will work to get a workable gap but the exact distance is 0.15 - 0.45 mm

No spark on spark plug and coil gets really hot and the car doesnt want to start mini 1275


The points may be closed up . This would complete the ignition coil circuit heating the coil but as the points would not open there would be no spark. First check that the distributor shaft is rotating and the contact point gap is set corectly when the rubbing block of the points is on the edge of the distributor shaft cam. From memory the gap should be .45 mm or 20 thou . Failing that the coil could have shorted out internally. Make sure if you replace the coil that you get the correct coil for the car.

I am replacing a bad coil in my Echo SMR 2100. I need to know the air gap between the coil and the flywheel.


Ignition module gap
Place a business or index card between the fly wheel and coil, rotate until the magnetic attraction pulls everything tight together. Tighten the coil screws, rotate the flywheel until the attraction abates and remove the card. Ensure nothing contacts when the flywheel is rotated.

You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You do not have to bend up the electrode.

Ignition coil gap:
An index or business card is a good gap tool. Remove the plug, rotate until magnetic attraction pulls coil and card tight to flywheel, tighten the coil screws. Rotate flywheel until magnetic attraction eases, remove card, rotate a couple of revolutions and ensure nothing drags or contacts flywheel. HTH

If you have not already, change the plug first and try it (very cheap insurance). If problem persists try this, it even checks the wiring and ignition switch:

If I completely missed the problem you are having you can reply below with a little more information and I will try again. If you need the part number of a replacement coil I need the model and serial if a Poulan to give you the correct answer.
