What about the 2.8 engine? I have a 1970 250c. What is the point gap for it?

I would think its the same.... something I want to bring up though.... once it started running on all cylinders again (point gap was way to far out) I started to experience detonation due to our crap gas.... anyway i retarded the ignition as far as possible and it still detonates a little bit....

I have thought about adjusting the point gap to a wider gap say .019 to reduce the time the coil energizes which will reduce detonation... I havent done it yet but its something to think about, especially if you want to save on gas money and run 87octane like I do.
