As part of the changeover to an electric distributor were you require to change the plug type or gap?
hello again! nope, I did not change my sparkplugs, I still retained my stock NGK Sparkplugs for my Toyota even after I changed my distributor, I also got an 8mm Mallory high tension wires for it though. Was there any specific measurement for the gaps in the sparkplugs when using an electronic distributor? thanks!

Those were only tests and probably has little relevance to your setup. The question was a point of curiosity on my part. I would stick with the recommendations of the distributor manufacturer.
