[texhax] plain TeX: changing margins on left/right pages?

In order to position left and right pages correctly for printing, I need to
have an addition 0.3" left gutter on even-numbered pages.

Can anyone give me a pointer as to how to do this in plain TeX?

(Oddly, the TeXbook doesn't seem to describe this in manmac, even though
the book itself clearly has different margins for the left and right pages.)

In case what I want isn't clear: \hsize stays the same but even-numbered
pages need to be shifted an extra 0.3" toward the right compared to
odd-numbered pages.
