Bringing 190E out of winter storage

I'll be replacing the plugs and fuses before I fire it up.

I was wondering, if I buy 6 Bosch Super Copper Core plugs, will they be gapped properly? If not, were will I find a gapping tool?

Please advise!

Thank you very much guys,

Mike McKinney

They usually come preset at 0.32. I like to set them at 0.35. Any auto parts store should carry a gap gauge.

Scott:

Thank you for your quick response. I will try out that longer gap at .035" that translates to about 1mm correct? I hope I can find an imperial gap gauge when I go to Canadian Tire. Do you recommend torquing them at 11 or 12 lb-ft?

Thank you again.
Take care,
Mike McKinney

1.00mm = .039"
0.89mm = .035"
