Re: Spark Plug Gap

The point I am making is nowadays no one takes out plugs, cleans and gaps them any more . If they are out , they are replaced and old ones binned . The correct new plugs are almost always preset to correct gap.The only time in recent years I have seen a mechanic gap a plug was when he dropped it and had to reset it . A quick glance at electrode / tip before fitting is usually all thats needed .As for your gap setting and mine, being so slight who ever is right ,on that car Michael Schumaker would not notice or feel any difference !!!!!
