I try to do something to the boat everyday no matter how small so it will be ready in the spring. Today it's spark plugs. I was hoping someone knows the gap on a 1990 Chevrolet motor. I do not have a manual for it. I know this should go in the maintenance thread, but I also know not everyone reads the maintenance threads and I need an answer soon. I have bigger plans for tomorrow and would like to have this out of the way.

Thanks

I think I might have found it. Does 0.035in. sound right? The old plugs are all different.

a dealer could probably tell you off-hand if that helps you at all...

.035 is correct for my Ford 351 in my 1991. I would call your local auto parts store and ask what the gap is for a 1990 Chevy engine. It doesn't matter if it's for a car or boat the gap is the same.

I know you're probably right, but you guys have had the answer to every question I have asked and some were real obscure. This is still my #1 source for information. If know one knows I will make a call before I go home. I have another hour.
Thanks

A 1990 V8 chevy would be a 5.7 correct:confused:

It's different than the gap between my first wives two front teeth I can tell you that. (like .280)

It's either .032 or .035 ;)

Alright, it is time to head home. I am going with 0.035. I found it searching online and believe it to be correct. Thanks for the input!

.035 is correct for a Chev 350 (5.7 l)

What boat? I don't think I've heard of a 1990 Mastercraft with anything but an Indmar Ford in it.
