22R Spark Plug Gap

I am swapping out my spark plugs today and I am told to check the emission control sticker for the proper spark plug gap spacing. Well, my 81 4x4 with the 22R does not say anything on the sticker, owners manual or anywhere else for that matter. Does anyone know? For now, I have changed the wire and distributor cap and rotor but I am waiting to do the plugs themselves. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Spark Plugs are in now BUT.....

Thanks for the help with the gap spacing. I have all the plugs in, new wires, new distributor cap and new rotor. Only now when I start the engine it cranks a lot longer than it used to prior to changing it all out.

Would this be an issue with a bad wire connection, bad gap spacing, or maybe the plugs aren't tight enough? This is the first time I have ever replaced spark plugs on any car so I was not sure what to expect. Is there anything I can do to see if I can make it start easier?

Thanks in advance!

I would double check and make sure your timing is right. Factory seeing for the advance is set to "0". I had the same problem so I advanced it between "0" and "5". Mine starts up within 2 turn overs now.
