SAE/Metric conversion tables?
A friend asked me what the Metric setting should be for his chain saw engine spark plug.
I told him i just eyeball them and either that or use a US feeler guage, as i don't think there is much difference in the width of the gap, being it is so small.
But, to ease his mind, i told him i would see if somebody here would or could send the chart showing the conversion settings, to metric, from our good old tried and true method!
He also asked me how to set the gap between coil and flywheel on larger lawn tractor engines. I showed him the strip of birthday card i use. I think he thinks i'm nutty, but it works for me! He also asked if i have a tool to reset spark plug gaps. I told him no, i just tap the side electrode on something hard to close the gap, and a small screw-driver to open it up. (I also showed him the coin-like tool for setting gaps.)
Any help will be appreciated!
