Just wonding what does everyone gap there plugs too?
Whatever the box says? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
.060 /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif What can I say even at .060 the gap is strong as can be w/ msd distributor/coil/box/wires.
I used to run .060-.065 with my MSD box, wires, coil, etc. Now that I went to FI from carb and don't have the MSD I run .02-.03 over what stock specs is for the TPI.
0.050" with my Summit HEI and MSD 6AL. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
Spark plugs are over-rated
I got the AC Delco rappid fire ones and it said NOT to gap them. They were off from what the blazer normally uses but I didnt gap them and they work great. If you have platinum plugs dont gap them because it can mess them up.
I run AC Delco CR43TS plugs at .035" in my 454.
gapped the r45t's in my 350 to .057
35-40 without MSD, 60 with it.
i have those plugs that have the four tips on them
cant gap them if i wanted to
so what do you gap your glow plugs to then /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif glow plugs are over-rated
Gapped mine at .035, .045, and .055, no difference with any of them. Stock HEI. You could probably gap up to .080 without noticing any problems.
