Everlast Powerpro 256 spark gap adjust

I've had this multiprocess Everlast welder for about 6 years and its been great. Lately the plasma torch wouldn't always light off and then it got to where it would not light off even with new consumables. This machine has a spark gap on the high frequency start for tig and plasma. Read up on the forums and some had to mess with the gap. Read that the multiprocess units need a gap of .035 to .045".  I set this at about .042" and now it lights every time. It was less to begin with but not much. Gap points are behind the front cover on the left side.

Movie shows gap sparking then plasma torch lighting off. Glad this is going.
