torque spec for our spark plugs?

so im gonna do my new IC pump and spark plugs today, and this is the first time i will have done plugs and owned a torque wrench so i figured i might as well use it anybody know what the plugs should be torqued to?

also i got the njk bkr8eix, 2 step colder plugs, and im running a 2.7" pully. the plugs came gaped at .40 iirc, and i know that the say you cant regap iridium plugs, but i know you can you just have to be really carefull, so should i stick with the .40 or come down to .35 or so?

No torque wrench is needed. Tighten them hand tight, then 1/8 to 1/4 turn more with the wrench. I would recommend running the NGK BKR7E, one step colder rather than the ones you have chosen. Then again, I'm often wrong.

He's in FL, so he might do a little better with 2 stages colder than I do with one stage colder up here in WI, lol. Well, I'm sure both would be fine once the engine is up to temp, but my plugs don't like these negative temps at cold startup.

Ok, so, like, yeah, umm....

TORX...get a SET, you need a T50 if you ever have/want to take off the idler pulley. I THINK the bolts you're looking for are T25 or so...?

$30 will get you a Craftsman set - vs spending $12 or so on the TWO you'll need MOST of the time.
