Chevy V8 Dual Point Dist. Question

I have a Chevy Mallory Dual Point Distributor, what is the point gap for them?

Sparkplug gaps are set at .035
Thanks, Mac

Search........





























Start with a point gap of .022" on each set of points. Then check the dwell. Each set should be around 26, both sets combined dwell should be 33 plus or minus 2.

Thanks for the help,
Looking forward to get my 1955 CJ-5 back on the trail this summer,
Get on a few WCW runs and a Black Rock Desert trip, etc.

Now just need to get front cross-member/Radiator support and Grill with Saginaw Steering box mod completed.

Thanks, Mac

You're welcome. Remember to gap the leading set of points first.
