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. Are special ignition wires required?

Different Types of Engine. 1. MAGNETO. The source that generates energy in the Magneto Ignition System is the Magneto. Generally, a magneto is a small generator that works on electricity. When magneto is rotated by the engine, it produces the voltage. The higher the rotation, the greater will be the amount of voltage produced by the system.
Look for any corrosion or gunk on the plug itself, and ensure that there is a small gap present in the spark gap of the plug. If the plug looks out of sorts, replace it. Otherwise, you can use your multimeter to test the plug and see whether or not a spark is present. Other parts of the ignition system, including the ignition coil and capacitor ...
