Try asking on the V8 forum. This section is not for car/tool questions, it's for problems with the site and it's use. While some look few reply in this section.

Re: About spark plug gap

Pay-Pal is done with an invoice thru Pay-Pal on their web site after you log in, there would be no telephone involved or any other name used. (This is for other reading that don't know)

Re: 23 T Roadster Headlights
