Could it be .010 to .020? I found this spec for an autolite starter used on an old tractor...just guessing. Thanks

I have an excerpt of the TM from another forum site but data such as this is absent. Thanks for helping out.

Last question. I don't have a travel gage for the pinion to adjust the yoke lever stop. In the absence of the gage, couldn't I measure the travel distance of the pinion Bendix and adjust accordingly? If so, what is that measurement? Thanks
