I just grab a business card and use it. Place it over the magnet, rotate the magnet under the coil, let the coil stick in place, tighten the screws and rotate the flywheel enough to remove the card. Never had one fail to operate.

My mistake, when he said coil, i was thinking PTO coil. Ignition coil about .010.
