I was told you could use a dime to gap plugs that it was close enough for all vehicles if you didnt have one of those gauge thingies...Is this true ? //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/cool.gif.3bcaf8f141236c00f8044d07150e34f7.gif

Then you make sure you have one before you start gapping your spark plugs

Many places hand them out for free with their company logo on it

Spark plug gapping ring are at Orileys for like 75 cents to about $1.30 key chain style..Always buy mine already gapped, but check due to bouncing around during shipment/stocking.Sometimes if you buy the plugs and ask they throw the gapping ring in for free they sometimes do

I usually get my parts at Autozone...I never thought about asking them
dont buy anything electrical there, seriously. Starters, alternators, wiper motors...All junk. I had to replace a starter and alternator three times in the parking lot before i got a working one. Went in the back and went through ELEVEN wiper motors with a tester...

my Corvette said it needed .045 so that would be close enough....
Troll post..

I used to have a 2007 chevy corvette z06.. The gap on mine was .035..

Even my sierra calls for .038 or near it as factory .060 is not good for new delcos.
