Thank you for your question.I am sorry you are having a problem with the Craftsman mower model 917.388903.  I will be happy to assist you. The air gap on the engine should be set to 0.010" Loosen the mounting screws and pull the coil away from the flywheel. Then turn the flywheel so the magnet is aligned with the coil. Then insert the feeler gauge between the magnet and the flywheel. Once in position loosen the screws and allow the magnet to pull the coil to it. Then tighten the screws and remove the feeler gauge.  I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.   Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark
