Plug and point gaps

I am changing plugs and points on my 1969 Ford F100 360 engine.
I believe that the plug gap is 35. Is this correct?
Also, what would be the gap on the points?
Thanks, Dan.

I generally will set them at 32 and 17 than use a dwell meter. But that will get ya on the road just fine.
