I've got a couple of questions for you smart guys out there. I got a Kinner or Gladden (i've heard people call the make either one of those names) 5 hp busy bee gas engine and one, how do you adjust the air gap between the armature and flywheel? The ignition is under the flywheel and the shroud is covering most of the flywheel. I was just wondering because I really don't think it needs adjusting since I found out the hard way doing the compression test. Another question is the carburetor has Marvel Schebler cast on it. I was just wondering what ever happened to them. That name sounds familiar. I posted the details of the motor a couple months ago but never really got my hands dirty til yesterday. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Mike
