A new distributor should not require a change in the gap of your spark plugs. While no automotive mechanic, I gap plugs to whatever the engine manufacturer specifications suggest. So if that particular engine says 0.041" then do that. My son also told me to always apply a light coat of an Anti-seize product to the threads, before installing them.

Very light cost of anti sease making sure to keep it off the electrode and only on the threads.. I've seen guys glop it on and the thing idle like crap only to find out after pulling the plugs that it prevented good spark..

Dielectric grease on the wire side of the plug doesn't hurt either to fight corrosion..
