Hi I have just changed ingnition coil that I got fron villiers services in a 8e motor, when I went to put the flywheel back on the ends that you bolt down to hold it in hit, but I can't see how the could move due to having two bolts both sides?? I took it all off again undid the ignition again to see if I could move it back any but no joy when I put it back together again, Has anyone got any ideas what I could have done. Thanks Paul

Paul,i am assuming you have changed the coil and used the original soft iron keeper plates (ends) that were on the original coil,if the old coil with the original iron shoes missed the flywheel ,so should the new one with the old shoes????If the coil has come complete with new ends,press these off and substitute your old ones.The air gap between the shoes and the flywheel is very small ,so machining tolerances mean you can end up with the shoes touching the flywheel when changing coils and/or flywheel.If you are using the same backplate,same flywheel and same coil ends and it missed before,it should miss now!,John
