Chevy 292 with HEI

I'm working on a '74 Chevy inline 292 and i'm going to install a HEI distributor. I need to know what plugs to use and what the gap should be. The head uses the older style plug with gasket. Thanks

Use the same heat range as you did with the points. The air fuel ratio hasn't changed, just the distributor. You will need a set of 8.5 mm plug cables with the HEI. I would gap them about 40K. Try that and if they don't run well go back to 35K.
