I'm no expert on these older rigs but my Haynes Manual says:
Distributor Point Gap
0.020" for L-head engine with Autolite distributor
0.022" for L-head engine with Delco Remy distributor
0.020" for F-head engine with Prestolite distributor

Dwell Angle
L-head 25-34 degrees
F-head 42 degrees

Spark plug Gap
F-head AC-45 or Champion J-8 0.030"
L-head Champion J-8 0.030"

Hope this is helpful.
