MG TD TF 1500 - NGK Plug Gap
|What gap is recommended with NGK plugs in a TD?|
|I'm running NGK's with resistors in them and use the gap they came with 0.035". I do have a sport coil on the TD and the original type coil on the TF. Both have the pertronix points replacement modification. |
hope this helps.

For what its worth I don't like the 'sports coil wide gap' approach. With normal set up I would advise sticking to .022" gap and non-resistor NGKs. The original cars used ordinary stock coils with a lower output than modern standard coils, but in the late 50s and 60s owners were persuaded to use 'sports coils' in the mistaken believe they would go faster !
Beware of modern coils with established names on them ! - many are now of dubious quality and come from some far flung part of the world ! A good quality coil can last 50yrs, and I have a collection of well made second hand L...s coils as a good source of spares, just in case they don't last that long !
|My setup is virtually the same as Bob's except that I don't use the resistor plugs. My sports coil is made by Lucas.|
