308GT4 Distributor wiring, continued
I pulled the wires as you suggested today. I started with #1 on the rear bank - engine speed died, then resumed when reconnected. Pulled #2 - no change. Pulled #3 - no change. Pulled #4 - no change. I figured that couldn't be. So, I connected my timing light to a spare battery, and put the sensor on #1 - light worked, #2 - no work, #3 - no work, #4 - no work. Tried the front bank, every one worked. Next, removed the distributor cap and checked the continuity of the Magnacor wires and new extenders that I had just installed. All four had the same reading. Pulled the plugs and checked the gap - all were set at about .033". My workshop manual says .025", so I cleaned and re-gapped them. Installed cap, plugs and wires. Fired up the car, and everythings seemed OK. Checked the plugs using the timimg light. All worked, however #2 had a bit of a miss. By the way, the plugs are new last November, NKG with less than 1000 miles on them.
Question: what is the correct gap? best plug for carbs?
Thanks for your assistance.
