Howdy All

I put a new stock chevy 350 crate engine in on my 56 Belair two years ago and used AC Deco R45TS gap 45 and a year later I put in the Edelbrock 3600 E Street FJ and left those plugs in, I always noticed hesitation taking off slowly.

Today I went to the auto store and mention the FJ and the guy said I should be gapping the plugs 35. I don't see it in the Edelbrock manual. Is the Auto Zone correct ?

Thanks in advance

Depends on what distributor your running. .045 if running an HEI .035 if not. Doubt changing your plug gap will fix your hesitation. More likely a timing issue.
