Im using WR7DC plugs. What gap do you recommend?I completed valve adjustment. I discovered by rotating the crank 240 degrees instead of 120 its easier to do the work because I can keep my tools on the same bank of cylinders.I find it challenging to know how the blade should feel to get the correct valve gap. Im using the Pelican Parts tool. If you know of a better tool please let me know. I find sometimes the best way is to move the tool sideways. I also find it sticky. Hard to start the movement, when it does it slips easily. The blade gets bent so Im sure this can double the thickness. I did a 2nd cycle with a new blade, and the blade slips thru easier. What about a twisting (turning) motion? Twisting the blade should be the most accurate way. How easy or hard of a force would be exerted or would this be an incorrect method?
