  1. I normally use a piece of cardboard thin enough like a shoebox loosen the screws put a piece of cardboard between the ignition coil push the ignition coil back to the flywheel as far as it can go and tight the screws never too tight because you will break the ignition coil housing and if you have any washer make sure to replace them i learn this from my daddy he was very good at fixing lawnmower so i start to fix on them and other small engine's

  2. THE WAY THAT WAS DONE WILL NOT YIELD AN ACCURATE DISTANCE,  NEEDS TO BE SOMETHING THAT WILL CONFORM TO THE RADIUS, LIKE BRASS SHIM STOCK OR EVEN PRENMEASURED "PAPER ",   ON NEWER MOTORS THE DISTANCE IS CLOSER TO 0.006",  REGARDS
