Okay, I feel silly asking this... but could someone please tell me the proper gapping for an '86 2.5L?

I went through damn near every page of my service manual, and didn't see it in there. My owners manual says 1.5mm, but it misfires like mad set that way. Is that number right, and I just need to rebuild my ignition system? Or is something else awry?

Thanks

I would suspect something else. Is the tachometer bouncing at all?

Proper gap on the 2.5L is 0.060, the R43TS6 *should* be pregapped to this spec. I always check and they always are, but better safe than sorry

Okay... .060 is 1.5mm, so, time to look elsewhere...

I took a peak under my distributor cap, and the contacts are worn concave.... So, new cap, rotor, plugs, and wires... just to be sure.

Thanks!

Doesn't it say on the underside of your decklid?

Who reads stickers on their car? XD

Haha, I never thought to look there... I forget they actually put some useful stuff there... IIRC, the vacuum line diagram is stuck in there too...
