i All,

Well, I've about got the MGA's head, manifolds, carbs, etc. back 
together. I know I've read it somewhere, but I sure can't find it 
tonight. What should I adjust the valve gap to be when the engine is 
cold? I know it is .017" hot, but I can't find a cold measurement. I 
thought I rememebered .025", but I wasn't sure.

Thanks to all for the spark plug suggestions. I found the NGK BP6ES, but 
the BP6E isn't even in the NGK catalog anymore. We'll see how they do 
compared to the Autolite 404 that I was using.

Sure hope this all works, and I haven't screwed anything up!
