I have a new magneto coil and flywheel to install in the Wisconsin s7d engine. Just like the Tecumseh's without a cutaway flywheel, how can I properly adjust the airgap of the coil and flywheel?
Any suggestions are greatly appricated. Thanks Adam

I haven't worked with those mags in a while.... I think usually what I did was just eye it up.

Mabye Daniel will have some better advice for you

I trust my packing got the flywheel to you in good order? On the air gap, what I usually do is just slip the flywheel on, spin it, and if good hot spark I just leave it be, other than to make sure the coil mounting screws are tight. If I think air-gap is wide, or spark is weak, I loosen the coil just enough to where I can tap it in & out, slide it outward, then lightly slip on the flywheel. I slip the coil out till it hits the magnets, then in tiny increments, move the coil inward until it clears the magnets completely. There may be a more clinical method, but this is how I do it.

Dan, Thanks for the advice. Hopefully in the next few weeks I'll get around to putting it back together.
