Old Oil furnace


HI gang!
Ok does anyone here have any expierence with a old Lincon Diesil type furnace,with those ignitors with the two-electrodes that site just above the orfice,that insert into the furnace intake?
I am looking for all the clearance measurements:

1. How far apart are those 2 electrodes are supposed to be?

2. How far from orfice,they should be.

3. And are the tips of the electrodes supposed to be flat,where the electricity flows,or should the tips be rounded?
Alot of nutty questions sorry,but this business of going down stairs every other funace cycling is wearing thee ol knees out.
