Common armature gap ranges are . 006 – . 010″ and . 010 – .
As long as it is not less than 0.30mm, it will be OK. 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.
A: This spark plug should have a gap set to 0.02 inches.
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.
If the gap is too small, the air can become ionized. When this happens, the air changes from a good insulator, to a good conductor. This is what allows an electrically charged thunderstorm cloud to suddenly release large amounts of current in a lightning strike.
A worn or excessive gap will cause an ignition coil to work overtime, using more voltage to bridge the gap and create a spark inside the cylinder. This increase in voltage stresses the internals of not only the ignition coil but, in certain circumstances, the driver of the ECU.
Spark Plug Gap for the RJ19LM is . 030″. ALWAYS check the gap carefully before installation.
The gap setting is different for each vehicle but most are somewhere between 0.028″ and . 060″. Consult the owner`s manual or Champion ® catalog to find the recommended setting for the vehicle you`re working on.

The wheels on my Toro 20038 are worn smooth. Is replacing the rear wheels a difficult job for a fairly competent owner?
You can do this one. Get the wheels from a dealer like www.arcolawn.com and install them yourself. 1/2″ head bolt on each wheel and a nut on the back side fasten them. easy as Pie….Well I would say easier. Have you ever made pie? tough job.Good luck
