    Hello all, I am changing my plugs and wires and I am not too sure what the proper gap for spark plugs for a small block 350...Parts stores are closed and I have tried refrencing the manual and websites still no luck...also being that I am running MSD should it be any larger or smaller?

    you do more with MSD. The larger the gap the bigger the spark possibility. With MSD it increases the power so the spark is able to jump a larger gap and therefor give a more powerful and larger spark.

    Thats what I understand from a relative that knows his cars he said i could probably goto as large as a .060 instead of a .045 but he said that the difference wont be that great to worry about it
