Spark Plug Gapping in Los Angeles (South Bay)

Hey everyone,

Just wondering if there's anyone available in the area to help me properly gap my new NGK spark plugs down to .020 - .023? The issue is that they were already installed, but at the pre-gapped length, and it's making myself and the car go crazy right now. Will gladly compensate for the trouble!

thanks,

Cyrus

I'm not in the area, but can help if you have the gapper tool. It literally takes 20 seconds to gap each plug correctly!

I use this tool everytime. Just find this tool with the gap size that you need. You slightly bend the prong, stick the appropriate size between the electrode and prong, if there is slight resistance, you're good.
