I just bought a 2004 Z570 and can't find anywhere in the manual where it says what the plugs should be gapped to. Since our local Cat dealer just closed, I don't know who to ask. Can anyone help.

They should be gapped already pretty close to what they are supposed to. My 96 zr580 I believe was to be gapped at .27 or something like that.

Open the hood and you should find some spark plug info on the air box or somewhere. It should tell you the gap and such. New plugs will be close, but they still need to be checked. More often than not, they are never right on right out of the box.

My 04 Z 570 plugs are to be gapped at .028 to .031. I had to get a spec sheet from the dealer because there was none in my manual. Hope this helps. jhsmustang

The gap should be 0.028 in (or .7 mm if you're in Canada- damn metric!!!!).

Ensure that you are using the right plugs (BR9EYA if I'm not mistaken) as the wrong plug will sit either too high or too low in the cylinder wall>


LIGHT TRAVELS FASTER THAN SOUND, WHICH IS WHY SOME PEOPLE APPEAR BRIGHT UNTIL YOU HEAR THEM SPEAK.

yep, I have a 2004 Z 570 and just looked in the manual for the Spark Plug Gap too, not there. I'll go w/ the 0.28". I have a set of BR9ES plugs, I think they'll work. Or do I need the BR9EYA?
