we have always used 1.01mm recomend between 1-1.1mm, change the plugs every 30,000km and leads avery 60,000km.

most spark plugs come pre gapped,,ie the 1.1 in the part number represents the spark gap of 1.1 mm.

I dont tend to trust pre gapped plug - it's worth double checking with the ol' feelers....

Std gap should be 1.1..

Next time give NGKs a run - fair bit cheaper than ford parts...
