.020". Be sure the two contacts meet square and be sure to clean after installation by closing them and running a business card or something similar between the contacts. Make sure the starter clutch is tight or you will be shearing flywheel keys.

For a few extra bucks I would install the 394970 Magnetron kit and forget about the points. You will get a stronger spark and no maintenance issues.
