Hello mfriesner71; my name is Roger and I will answer for you. The correct plug gap is 0.027 to 0.031.in. Any gap between these will work fine. Just make sure they all gap the same. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. This way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

you have to take off the speedometer cable/wiring harness from the top of the trans and fill it from there....one 10mm bolt...very awkward spot...it might be snug, so just take a flat head screwdriver from underneath to tap it loose...
