Adjusting electrodes

Is there a certain gap on electrodes for Weil-Mclain boilers?
If so how can I find this out?

In general oil burner electrode gap is 1/8" to 5/32" (4/32" - 5/32").

However, there are several other measurements that also need to be properly setup. If you list which burner you have I'm sure someone will have the information.

The electrode gap

I feel this is one of the most valued spec in order for the burner to burn without issues. I finally had to replace my electrodes because I couldn't get them into spec with my burner specifications.

More info.Electrode adjustment

My nameplate data on this boiler is as follows,
Flame Retention Burner:
oil burner model EHA
Firine range 2.50-3.00 GPH
120 volt- 60 Hz= 5.4 amps
Wayne home equipment.
I don't know if this helps but it is in a Weil Mclean boiler and is at least 18 years old.
In researching I think this might be a Becket burner.The pictures look the same.Also, what is the "Z" setting? And how can I set it?
Thanks everyone, it is getting better.
