Triumph TR6 - Spark Plug Setup
|I installed a new MSD 6A ignition yesterday and experienced a very noticable engine performance increase. So then started to look at the MSD spark plug gap recommendations which said to increase the gap to .050 at compression ratio's less than 10.5:1|
I found that at the wide gap, performance dropped off with a high speed miss so put the gap back to around .037
Could folks write in with thier compression ratio, spark plug make and model and the gap. I'd be interested to see what others are running.
My plugs are the Bosche Platinum's, my CR 9.5:1, ignition Crane XR700 optical points with the MSD.
73 5 Speed.
I have essentially the same set-up as you:
And yup, I gap them around 0.037"
