fs 85 coil replacement

i have an FS 85 that does not have spark. i have changed the plug and have i disconnected the kill switch just in case that was the problem. i have a new coil and will replace it this evening. can someone give me any specifics? i have searched this forum and can only find some generalities about the air gap. does anyone know the specific recommendation? anything else i need to know??????

The difficult I can do right now, the impossible may take a little longer.

What I do, is use a file card, cover off a book of matches, put then coil on loose, bring the flywheel around so that the magnets are pulling the coil down
with what ever I'm using to set the gap, tighten the screws and I'm done. Works for me
