What does the engine manual say?

My guess is between .025 and .030.

I agree, check the manual. Most small engine plugs are around .030 or so.

If your engine is stock, go with the setting in the manual.

.030 seems to be a good number. So yes.

Most plugs come pregaped now. Ask the parts guy when you buy it. He may can look it up and tell you the gap.

I already have the plugs. Im just making sure they will be correctly gapped (shipping might mess it up) when I put them in, once i get my motor back...
