plug gap?

Hello!!

I found a John Deere weedwacker model #S1400 a couple years ago at work next to a trash compactor. I brought it home figuring, since it is a Deere, it might be worth fixing. If it was a $59.95 model, it probably would have been compacted. The only problem was the carb was gunked up, so I gave a neighbor who is more mechanically able than me a 12 pack of Corona to take it apart and clean it out. It did run when I primed it, just wouldn't stay running. I am going to be using it this year and I want to replace the spark plug, so if somebody could tell me what the gap is or if they are already pre-gapped, it would make life a little easier. Thank you much for any input and don't have too much fun!!

Generally the pre-gap is correct. It is .030".
