How do my plugs look?

It might be the angle but the gapping looks pretty short than recommend but other than that they don't seem real real bad. Maybe a little lean wear showing on a few

I agree. I do a lot of HEI/Weber conversions on 258s at my Jeep-only shop, and I typically use Autolite 985 plugs gapped at 0.050" for HEI applications.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

1 and 3 (from the top) look a little crusty but not bad.
Which way did they come out? top forward or top rear?

Agree on the tight gap too. If you got HEI it doesn't make sense not to take advantage of the extra juice.

top forward.
Ive always used autolite 66 because that's what was in it when I first got the car. Should I be using 985's?
I'll give the .050" a shot and maybe compare with .045", see what runs best. What is the advantage of the larger gap? Bigger spark=more complete burn, correct?

HAHA serious shade tree.
I haven't done the dime since I used a matchbook to set the points.
