Points gap on 272/292 Y block?

Hello I'm new here, I'm replacing the points and plugs on my '64 Ford
F-100, it was hard enough finding parts, nobody seems to know the gaps
to set them to. The block is 272, but it has many 292 parts on it, I'm
hoping the gaps are the same, being that they're the same family of
engine. Thanks in advance for the info.-Jitney

Re: Points gap on 272/292 Y block?

to be honest with you, I would throw the points it the glove box to have as
spares, and put a pertronix ignitor in there. then you would never have to
touch it again.
I did this years ago to all the falcons, the 66 7 litre, a bunch of fe block
trucks, and a few john deere tractors.
but the point gap should be around .017 or 17 thousandths

My 1978 Motorcraft book shows .030" for 62-64 truck with 292.

Ford V8 Performance Book shows points at .015", dwell at 26-28 degrees. Plugs are at
..032-.036"

yea, I was looking in the ford service manual a while ago for the 65 falcon,
and noticed they called for a point set at .032 for a dwell of 17-19. had to
chuckle at that. took 40 years to notice that misprint.
