.035 should work fine.Much more and you just working your ignition harder for nothing.

is there an advantage to wider gaps-- i keep hearing 45 or 60 from around this area.. I always used to run .35 in mine but seems everyone around here says at least 45--help

if your ignition is hot you can run a wider gap then you will have a more complete burn thus more power
