On your 77 there are no points, it is electronic ignition. that is why there is no gap or dwell. the only adjustment you have is the timing. which is 12 degrees before top dead center or (tdc)

SOURCE: Spark plug gap

The correct gap is 0.054 Don't for get to buy the anti seize for the plug so it's easier to replace the next time your replace them and if you use Platinum Spark Plugs, your good for 100.000 miles before they need to be changed if your engine is running 100% on emissions. Good luck and hope this helps.

2005 lincoln aviator on fifth battery in nine years. Why?

Motorcraft Batteries?

In my Lincoln L/S, the first one lasted 3 1/2 years & was done under warranty

Second one lasted 5 years

Now that one failed two weeks ago at 20 months

In my case the battery is in the trunk & you can't find a battery with
a vent for that car & ford batteries are on odd size, just for their
design or group size,go figure

The Motorcraft Max is free for 3 years & pro rated for 100 months,
so not a bad deal.

IF you have a big enough battery tray & a basic looking battery,
try the NAPA Legend Batt 8465 750 CCA 65 BCI (group size)

They are from East Penn MFG in Penn & plants in other states & their own brand is DEKA in the private parts stores

What I like is that there are no caps on top & no leaking, just like
the old AC Delco I used for 40 years & got 7 to 9 years out of them

I have had a Napa in my 30 year old blazer for two year so far

The question,well I think it is part battery & part the load the electronics puts on the batteries

When I open the trunk & have only the trunk light on & with a
new or old battery, I only get 12.3 volts

I get the same thing on my scan tool data when I turn off the car
& then put the key on,yet all data is good KOEO or Engine Running.

Car gave several coughs at 60 plus yesterday then seemed to clear today had spate of 10 / 12 coughs and splutters during which the engine light came on and the battery light ... changed down gear to 2 or 3...

Depending on the mileage of the vehicle sounds like the timing belt has stretched. If the coughing is when you give it gas but not when it is not under load timing belt would be my guess. Good luck and drive safe.

Tune up

You need to study or research info on tune-ups
Basically it is a sales pitch, as only spark plugs are left
& tune-ups stopped 25 years ago from a technical perspective
Your not actually tuning anything
You replacing old spark plugs,gas & air filter etc,that has been
called preventative maintenance for over 20 years
For the last 30 years the vehicles Computer does all the
engine tuning

After degreasing & rinsing engine, only runs

Try removeing the distributor cap and dry up any liquid under the cap and on the inside of the distributor. Blowing it off with air pressure and or use paper towels.If it has points carefully clean and dry the gap.
I hope this helps you.
