sorry, but I'm kinda lazy about looking in the manual...

points gap is?

plug gap is?

I know correct procedure on static timing (i think! lol) but timing mark should be in the right edge of timing hole with timer in fully advanced position right?

.022
Just finished setting mine on the 51.
Timing on single point is about 2-3 line widths from the right edge of the timing plug hole.
