What is the spark plug gap for my 1993 f150 5.8?

Where ever you got the sparkplugs should be able to tell you that.

There should be a sticker under the hood that gives you the gap. I wouldn't trust a parts store to give that information. Too easy for them to screw up.

I believe the range is 0.042 to 0.046.

I'm not sure when the cutoff year was, but later models used .052-.056. There should be an emissions label under the hood that lists the correct gap for the truck.
