Q:

What is the timing specifications for engine model 445777-0154-E1?

A:

There is no timing procedure needed. The flywheel and crankshaft is aligned and linked using the flywheel key. The flywheel and crankshaft both have a groove which aligns the flywheel with the crankshaft using the flywheel key. The flywheel and crankshaft are timed once they are assembled. When the flywheel is spinning the magnet passes by the fixed magneto which causes the magneto to fire at the proper time.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
