I had the same problem with my 95. Normally, If you turn the ignition on, (not where you turn the engine over) you should hear the fuel pump "humm" for a second or two. If you don't, then your fuel pump switch/relay may be bad. The switch/relay is located in the fuse box under the hood on the driver side. Just to get by I would give the fusebox a hard tap with my nuckles as if I was knocking on someones door. If the ignition is still turned on as I wrote above, you'll hear the fuel pump kick in. The truck can now be started. This is a quick fix however. Replace the switch/relay as soon as possible.
A bad fuel pump will cause your vehicle to not start or sputter and then stall. A dirty air filter can have the same symptoms.

Most common cause would be the plus wires. Dampness causes them to arc and the cylinder that the wire is arcing on won't fire causing a miss/sputter.
005 gap is pretty minimal. While the engine may not run perfect and fuel economy may be affected, it is not enof of a difference to cause sputter and misfire. A .005 gap difference in what we need to know.
