Re: can't gap my spark plugs to .030 (93supercoupe)
you would notice the duration differenaces on a scope or something but thats about it, a differance that small you will not feel, and i highly doubt it will make much of a differance as long as they are all the smale
jokes aside, can you REALLY make the gap smaller and safely? can u take pliers and move the floating metal piece and move the whole cylinder with the threads on it to make the gap smaller? or can you just push it on the floor till you get the .030 that we want.
holy dshit man, go get teh spark plug gapping tool.
IKf the plug is gapped LARGER than what you want (came .35 and you want .28) you put the .28 inbetween the electrode and metal (it should be loose, about .07 off, lol) and tap the plug against something so that the metal bends down and then the gap will now be .28
IF the plug is smaller than what you want, mebbe you dropped it or something... there should be a hole on the gapping tool, use it likie a bottle opener and increace the gap beyond that of what you want (dont measure this part, jsut open it up some) then smush it down like you do if the gap is smaller than what you want. This **** isn't computer science.
Your tool should look like a coin, except along the outside is a ramp. It starts at the thickness of the coin and gets thinner to accomodate the different gaps.

Wow, just plain wow. I was trying to find a "how-to" site on how to gap your spark plugs but I can't find anything. I guess it ranks up there with trying to find a guide for how to wipe your ***. It's common knowledge.
