I'm really having trouble setting the edge gap on my '66 MF-10. It's a magneto ignition engine with S/G.
I believe that to set the edge gap for the coil / magnet on flywheel I must leave a .020 gap from the first pole of the coil. The points are supposed to begin opening at this time, yet they are opening when the magnet is almost past the second pole of the coil. Somethings really not right.
Does anyone have experience with these magneto cast iron tecumsehs? Please help, I don't want to rip the motor out and replace it but my patience is wearing thin.
