jherrin215 Yeah that's what I used. It doesn't seem that the top part is worn at all. They are all still square on the ends. The electrode does seem to have some wear, but .2 is a lot of wear I would think. But I don't really know, that's why I posted it up on here!!

Thats what the plugs wore down to, as you use them the gap starts opening up as the material 'wears' away on both parts. You can regap them but it's just as cost effective to just replace them. Also one of those handy coin sized gappers works pretty well once you check it with a good set of gauges.
