Re: Spark Plugs for LT?
I got the NGK iR plugs today at O'Rielly auto. They didn't have them in stock when I first called but managed to get 4 in 2 1/2 hours. $6.99 each. They look good and all the info I received was positive. They did have a few of the E3 plugs there but not the E3.36 which is what was said to be the replacement to the Spitfires.
The E3's they did have looked like they have a tip that almost goes all the way around the electrode, almost like a flare nut wrench. It offers much more surface for the spark to travel too but like said earlier by Dave, does not seem to have platinum or iR for the tip. O'Rielly auto didn't have them in stock and the kid at the counter didn't know if he could get them but quoted me a price under $6.00 each.
As a note when I put the NGK's in, they first felt loose as if the threads were not the same but when I checked them against the Bosch's, the measurements between the two were exact. The did tighten up well but at first had me leary. When I tried, the LT started right up without any hesitation. Have not yet taken for a ride as I'm still putting the tupperwear back on.
