Hi Bill

I would have thought the plugs should be the same as standard ie BP7ES or BP6ES

I opened the gaps on mine to 030" ...This is with Magnetronic and Bosch 'Blue' coil.. You want to see (and hear!) the spark from that set up. :shock:

Don't get hit by it or you will not need any rockets to get to the moon. And if you do? ... Remember our postcards!

Electronic ignition, Bill - so the plugs will be BPR7ES or BPR6ES. But then Aldon will tell you that.

The plug leads should be resister type, also.

BP6ES, resistor lead set, Lucas Sports/Pertonix/Bosch blue coil and gaps work great at .030'-.032".

I run with Bosche Super 4's, Not sure how they fit in with the hot/cold numbers, but they dont foul up no matter how I drive.
