Guy's at the local shop talked me into Autolite double platinum plugs, I know should have went with just plain old plugs. Since I'm running a points ignition should these be gapped at .32, they recommend a gap of .55, seems awful wide for a basic standard ignition.

I'm not too sure about all those crazy plugs out there on the market BUT, I did notice you said points with a newer 5.0. Is that a roller cam engine ? Did you change distributor gears ?

I'd stick with the narrow gap unless you install something hotter that will jump .055.

I think the narrow gap would be better as well, it's a totally stock points ignition system with the exception of being dual points. When I looked at the plugs tonight it appears that the burn is uneven across the ceramic tip, half the tip is gray, the other half white.
