what is everybody using for the spec on the points gap?
i don't have a dwell meter.
my manual tells me to use .020"
i see the replacement parts A 45 Restoration Co on line. it looks like they are saying the spec is .025-.030".
am i misunderstanding something?

.025 is what I set them at which permits wear beyond .030.
