This is .015-.025in. not millimeters. Set the points gap to .015in.

The correct metric equivalent is 0.35-0.63mm

I think you meant to write 360 degrees. If you're using a piston stop you will also need to attach a degree wheel to the rotor to find the EXACT top dead center.

If you use a dial indicator it's easier. Google " find tdc, piston stop, degree wheel " and watch some videos.
