Spark plug gap is perhaps the most unimportant spec ever.

I don't know of any power mower that won't work just fine with a spark plug gapped using a dime.

If you enter your model number (and serial number if you have it) at the link below, you'll have access to your owner's manual which will tell you what your spark plug gap should be.
Hope this helps.

I was told the spark plug gap was supposed to be 42

spark plugs are not as critical as in the older point controlled systems
the gap increased the resistance to the spark to jump and so gave a hotter spark when it occurred ( same as putting a button in the copper wired lead to burn oil on the plug)
as modern vehicles use a much higher voltage ( early 16.000 volts ,late 60.000 volts ) the the plug gap went from .025" to .050" for a better spark front to ignite the mixture
the correct gap for your vehicle can be obtained from plug catalogs, parts dealers , service shops
it is more important to use the correct HT leads as recommended by the manufacturer as there are variations of internal resistance in the carbon track in the lead that will affect the spark

240 s chainsaw no spark anytime,point gap fine ,air gap fine,all connections tight,clean of dirt and grease,I suppose it is looking like a new coil which is no longer available!

Hi, screw out the spark plug and plug in the spark plug cap (connect to the coil wiring), then touch the metal part by the spark plug tip, and pull the manual starter and see whether there is spark between the two poles of the spark plug (at the tip), then you can define the problem in which side. (wiring side including the coil or the engine side).

What is spark plug gap for 2000 ford focus lynx ghia 1.6l gas?

It really depends on the spark plug being used. But if you stick to the origninal spark plug NGK TR5A-10 it is supposed to be gapped a 1.0 mm since Ford has issued an in house service directive to reduce the gap from 1.3 mm (original) to 1.0 mm (present) 0.03936996

Spark plug gap?

you usually dont have to worry about the gap. but when you buy the plugs from the store they can tell you if the gap is already where its supposed to be or if you have to gap them yourself

I changed my spark plus and noe my k-1 will not start. what is the correct spark plug gap for it. and if that does not work what should i do next

Spark plug gap maladjustment will not stop the engine from starting. It will however produce misfiring or rough idle. More than likely, a spark plug cable has stopped making contact. Check the cables for continuity from the coil end, to the spark plug cap end. And also, if the spark plug terminal at the top is making contact with the cap. Check if your plugs are supposed to operate with the bare screw, or the adapter cap.
