  I set mine at ...intake .006 and exh .018, at an idle...after running for 
about 20 minutes at 1200 rpms or so.

 Don't recall off the top of my head to tell which is which...after the first 
time I set them, I never needed to try and figure it out..they're alway 
pretty close when I check'em...i/e the .018 gauge won't fit in the intake.

oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
