Adjusting spark plug gap advice please.

Postby bayzil » Mon Feb 12, 2018 5:57 pm

Hope this is in the correct section.

First time having a go at changing spark plugs...what is the best method to adjust the gap. I need to adjust up to recommended 1.1mm feelers set to 1.1wont fit the gap ... Do I just bend gently with pliers? :text-thankyouyellow:

No need to set the gaps these days..the 1.1 on the box is the gap it is already set to buddy...fit them straight out of the box.

what, even though the 1.1 on the feeler gauge is too thick for the gap? so still ok to fit straight out the box without adjustment? The plugs were from Autolink btw.
