SOURCE: dual electrode spark plugs

Gap it to 0.7m You do not want to close the gap too much or it will burn to hot and faul your plugs too soon. Make sure your useing a metric gap. If you have a thousandths gap gauge, go to between 27 and 28 thousandths of an inch. Here is a conversion table for you to print out.

SOURCE: 79 harley ironhead 1000cc xlh no spark from coil

It sounds like your sensor in the timer cavity on the right side of the engine is bad. Disconnect the blue wire from the coil. Take a spark plug out of the engine, put it back in the spark plug wire, and lay it on the head. Turn the switch on and momentarily touch the blue wire to the coil. When you take the wire off of the coil, you should see a spark at the plug. The purpose of the sensor in the timer cavity is to stop the flow of current in the coil and initiate a spark.

Good Luck
