Hi all.
What is the ideal spark plug gap when useing a HEI dizzy? I've heard that the gap needs to be bigger. Also, what are the best spark plugs to use with a HEI dizzy 50000 volt?

yeah, the dunnydores used a 1.5mm gap from factory (instead of the old 0.9), those plugs seem to work a treat for me, but then, i have a dunnydore motor. and the bastards also went and changed the oil filter on the black motor so every time i go to do a service i end up buying the wrong filter beacause i always forget this detail and having to go back to get another one on the bike cos theres no oil left in the car thats up on stands.... grumble grumble.... whos idiot idea was it to stick a black motor in the HJ anyway?
