Default Re: Spark plug gap...Myth? Fact?

Be careful concerning the "widen it 'till it won't run anymore". If the spark cannot jump the spark plug gap, and the engine is repeatedly cranked over, the spark energy will eventually find a way to discharge itself. That will ruin the CDI unit. They are sensitive little buggers.
