here ya go...

.039 - .043 for the plugs

base timing 20 +/- 2

you didn't tell us what you are going to do or have done so it's hard to tell if you've missed anything...there's alot more to a good tune up than plugs and timing

btw...unless someone has fooled around with it or you don't know the history, the timing shouldn't need to be adjusted

I would change the fuel filter and clean the throttle body while your at it.If the air filter is dirty put one in.Depending on mileage(check the owners manual)it may be time for a timing belt also.

the timing chain has...

...no service interval...if it's not making noise, don't worry about it. and just so you know...they are a PIA!

Sorry thought it used a belt not a chain.
