You're right Pablo ... I mistakenly wrote a spark plug gap of .30 when I should have written it as .030 ... big difference! I guess I just got used to saying it as "thirty" and so wrote it that way.
Actually, I just went back and deleted my spark plug gap recommendations. I was offering some "general" information that, while it may have been relevant years ago, may not be accurate today on these particular engines. Just couldn't resist offering my (old) 2-cents worth to try and make the motor go.
Thanks for the correction and sorry for any bad info.
