Default G26ei Sensor Gap

Anybody know the thickness of that gauge? I don't have one and I need to set the gap between the sensor and the magnet on the rotor.

Regards
Michael

use a postcard. The distance, if less than 0.5mm is not critical at all.

Thanks.

Went to the LHS and measured the gauge from a new one in the box. For future reference it's .041 inches.

The standard has been .5mm or .020" for many years but they will mostly work at 1mm or .040"

So now you have a tolerance to work with

The Zenoah EI does not follow general rules. Being industrial engines, they need more tolerance. They also draw more than twice the current of a standard engine. so here's to Zenoah:
Overrated
underpowered
overweight

So it makes sense that, in line with Zenoah policy, the EI is overhungry for power. I have reports, that failure rates are about what to generally expect from EI units : 2% to 5%.
