After cleaning, dress the electrodes with a small file to
obtain flat parallel surfaces on both the center and side
electrodes (Figure 14). Set the spark plug gap to specifications by
bending the ground electrode (Figure 15): all spark plugs, new or
used, should have the gap checked and reset as required.
