Setting Gauge 0.35mm for Setting Ignition Coil Gap. Genuine Stihl Part.
If the gap is too great, the engine may not start as easily. If the gap is too small (< 0.30mm), there is the risk that the coil and flywheel might touch as the flywheel heats up and expands when the engine is run. If they touch, the coil will be ruined from a shorting of the iron sheaves.
For circular coils this spacing is equal to half the diameter of the coils; for square coils it is2 equal to 0.5445 times the length of a side.
What is the correct spark plug gap for my STIHL trimmer, chainsaw, or blower? The correct gap setting is 0.020″.
Many think the larger the gap, the better. However, if the gap is too large, and the ignition system can`t provide the voltage needed to spark across the gap, or turbulence in the combustion chamber blows out the spark, misfires will occur.
If the gap is too small, the spark will likely be too weak and cause the engine to run poorly or with poor efficiency.
What should the spark plugs be gapped at? When running a magneto ignition it is not necessary to run a wide spark plug gap due to the longer duration of spark. We recommend that you set your plugs anywhere from 0.018” to 0.025” with the closer gaps being used for higher RPM applications.
