Spark Plub Gap?

Postby Steve Woods » Sun Apr 08, 2012 2:20 pm

I don't understand this:


Don't they all run on "gaseous fuel"? What ta heck am I supposed to gap the plug for the K 241 gasoline engine on my 1971 CC 108? .035" or .018"?

Not sure about that but my 106 has the K241 motor and I use .035 and it runs great. Grump

The gaseous fuel is LP fuel. Some generators run on it.
Set your spark plug to .035 gap.

There were a few diesel cadets in the 1980's.
IHC made a quality machine and was leader of the pack.Let's keep them running,

Battery/Breakerless = Ignition coil
Magneto= Magneto (no battery required, no ignition coil)
Gaseous fuel= LP gas engine- spark plug gap is the same regardless of ignition system type
