You should be able to run the same spark plug you have.

a lot of people run a gap about .025 on gas and for what we have seen on alky the best is around .035 its faster than .025 in my truck and our other motor

auto-lite AR-34 I think is the plug number. MSD 7AL3. MSD pro coil . and at least .050 quicker

I was told just the opposite, close the gap with alky, to about 25, about 50 with gas, with msd box and coil.

Gas or alcohol, gap shouldn't change much, gap is a result of the amperage/voltage of the ignition system, and the resistance to the arc by the amount of stuff you try to squeeze between the two electrodes. More compression, less gap.... at 18-1 it likes to blow the spark out at anything over .026" with a MSD7al3 and a pro-power coil.

It's ...close the gap if you have a mag. ...050" with gas is waay wide i.m.o.

Aint nothing perfect....run what works Smile
