It's been a while since I've been on this board...thanks for reopening it again.
I have a ZZ4 aluminum head (street only 10:1cr) motor with a #8360 MSD distributor (light blue springs w/ 21 degree bushing), Blaster 2 coil, no box is being used, GM PERFORMANCE PARTS recommended AC DELCO MR43LTS plugs. I use TAYLOR Pro Spiral 8mm wires, 15 degrees BTDC idle timing on ported vacuum. The carburetor is a DEMON and 91 octane is used. Headers are SANDERSON QP1000 cast iron. The rear axle is a 3.42 and the transmission is a 5 speed TREMEC...all in a 3,500# '57 Chevy 150 sedan.
What is the recommended spark plug gap? Old points distributors were .035 and HEI is .045...none of my MSD material specifies a plug gap.
I've read through all of the old questions pertaining to spark plug gaps and found most had to do with using an MSD box.
Thanks, JW

Anywhere from 0.040" to 0.045" will be just fine.
