    Pickup Coil Adjustment

    When the pick-up coil is bolted to the pickup plate, such as on chrysler distributors, the pickup air gap may be measured with a nonmagnetic copper feeler gauge positioned between the reluctor high points and the pickup coil.

    Pickup coil gap adjustment.
    • If a pickup gap adjustment is required, loosen the pickup mounting bolts and move the pickup coil until the manufacturer's specified air gap is obtained.
    • Re-tighten the pickup coil retaining bolts to the specified torque.
    • Some pickup coils are riveted to the pickup plate, and a pickup gap adjustment is not required.
