I'm browsing through the spark plugs on rockauto checking out the selection. According to my manual, my '94 5.0L takes spark plugs with gap .044", yet on rockauto most of the plugs for the truck (including all the motorcraft plugs) have .054" gap. the only ones that have .044" are the Bosch. What gives?
Bosch are those special fancy expensive plugs. Arent the twin electrode plugs? go with the motorcraft copper power tip or the autolite power tip plugs. Our engines are not that critical to use fancy plugs, you can still get 50,60,000 miled or so on reg plugs as long as the electrodes are good and are tight in the body, our pont grand prix has regular ac plugs that have about 70,000 on them, I just glass bead them and regap, still good.

rofl tomorrow I'm going to take a pic of how I fixed my radiator overflow/windshield washer fluid tank... that'll put to rest all these rumors about how I only do it by the book :P I'm just saying my Chilton's manual says .044 and I wasn't sure if the gap was something I could modify on the plugs after I buy them. with all the horror stories about spark plugs in these trucks that float around on this forum, how can anyone blame me for being careful?
