Re: spark plugs new question

Post by fryedaddy »

does any of the new plugs come with a gasket or alu.shim? i noticed on the champion plugs i just took out that they had been leaking because i saw a little oily substance on the threads and above the threads on nearly every plug!! i remember when plugs came with a shim. plugs dont seal good on my heads without shims

Tapered plug seats ,require a tapered plug,,if not the plug needs a washer,like on a champion plug that goes in your lawnmower...pop
