2 stroke motor help? Answered

Hi guys I built something similar to this https://www.instructables.com/id/How_to_Strap_a_Leaf_Blower_Engine_to_a_Bike_and_Go/ anyways the coil thingy that the guy cut a circular hole for came off my engine. There's magnets in it. I'm pretty sure that the magnets drive the spark plug as there's a small black piece that hooks to the plug. So am I screwed?

if you are looking to set the air gap on between the ignition coil and the flywheel magnet, use a business card as a general setting. Without knowing your engine make, model, code there is no way to tell the exact air gap. I still use this method at work when there is no service manual to follow. Just make sure when you put in the business card that the metal legs off of the coil are on top of the magnet for the flywheel or you may run into clearance problems when you actually try to run the unit.

I agree with Wesley666 but I always use a dollar bill instead of a iece of cardboard. I also might sugest getting a book about two stroke engines from your library. Or you could just go online.
