points is .020", coil is .010"


good luck adjusting the coil, I've never figured out a good way of doing it (this is with the points and coil underneath the flywheel)

There is NO air gap setting for the ignition coil on units where the coil is mounted underneath the flywheel!

If the coil is external then the correct air gap setting is .0125"

The only adjustment you can make on units with the coil mounted under the flywheel is to the timing.

oh really? interesting


now that you mention that and I think of the design, your right, those 2 bolts that hold in coil arms on don't move it closer to the flywheel, they make it so you can turn it clockwise or counter clockwise

30 year, you know to much :p

i thank you all for the information. not sure of the electronic module as the points and coil r inside the flywheel.........i got the parts the other day and installed them........did the point settings.........n no spark oh my did i goof up my diagnosis, well the problem turned out the points were not closing the spring tension was not enough i had to rebend it for more tension, success got great spark by just turning flywheel by hand, oh the points r made in china go figure.........again tks for the information now back to spliting firewood........

No Problen To Fit The Elecronic Module You Disconect The Wire Conecting The Coil To The Points Join This To The Wire You Get With The Module This Will Feed From Under The Flywheel Now Mount The Module Outside On The Engine Conect Wire Job Don Just Replace The Module If It Ever Packs Up ( Never Has One Go Yet)
