Dude is that a tire ? or an O-ring..??
champion plugs belong in lawn mowers only..
Just for information sake, what does a resistor plug do that's not good for the engine.Anybody know?
You can also buy resistor plug wire as well. Under no circumstances would you want to run more than one of the three resistor options. If you do, you can create problems - esp. if you run electronic ignitions.
A little while back I went to autozone and ask for valve lapping tool, the sale guy then asked me "what the F@$):& was that" yes literally with F word. Despite that, I bought the tool anyway, cut up rubber parts, used it to my need, put back in package, returned it few days later.
...These days, I'm not sure if resistance helps or hurts. I struggle to get my head around how ethanol has impacted this. From all I've read, the ethanol mix in fuel slows down the combustion a touch - so does having a stronger spark help, or would a slight delay on the spark help fully ignite the fuel charge in the cylinder. Hmmmm...
So (ahem) for the electrically-challenged amongst us, if I understand this correctly you could run the higher resistance plugs without an immediately noticeable change in performance (say you were stranded somewhere and AutoZone (shudder) was the only available place or plugs).
Longer terms it shortens coil life & point life
and you won't get optimal performance, but you "could" run them for a bit if necessary without, say blowing up your engine or causing irreparable harm, correct?
