For a 200-6, the '65 shop manual calls for a gap of .032 - .036 inches.

Sounds like you're back to wrenching on the car. Did you round up a spark plug setting tool?

With a pertronix, .045 is right. With points, .032

Glen: the larger gap is used only with the Petronix coil or other aftermarket high output coil. The Petronix ignition put onto the dizzy instead of the points doesn't require a change of plug gap.
