Thanks. The gaps on the plugs are fine but the newer wireset tested double the resistance of the set that was removed with the coil wire quadruple resistance. So it was back on with the older wireset and coil wire. Cleaned up the cap and rotor. But the crappy idle and poor low end performance was due to a carb stud that pulled out of the aluminum manifold.
