      I actually got up off my arse and looked, disturbed the spiders and all. Using Autolite 3076 at .035 gap, 'cause I can't afford $100.00 fer spark plugs!

      I am not too proud to take any and all contributions to the cause.

        W18's are definitely our biggest seller.

            Most ANY plug with the CORRECT Heat Range will work well. There are NO "MAGIC" spark plugs!
            With the suppliers cheapest plugs, Minerva did 12,000 miles, in 8 years without ever even pulling a plug! Don't remember the Brand???---Vermin will fire off with like new Champion C-16-Cs, that were in him when I bought him.
            I drive with GUSTO, to keep the plugs cleared out, that's my "secret" way. AND, be sure to torque them EVENLY @ 25 Ft Lbs.

              I use Champion 3x on my coupe (about $20 ea at O'Reilley's.) I use Autolights on the others. The 3x just look right, and since the coupe is my favorite, I spoil her. But I haven't noticed any difference in performance with either brand.

                  Do you have the part number O'Reilly uses for the 3X?

                    No, you'll have to go in, and they'll look it up and probably have to order it from the warehouse. That's what my local store had to do. Then when I went in to pick them up, they had a little trouble finding them (lost on a back shelf). But your store might be more organized.

                      2 years ago went to napa asked about 3X plugs, they had to order them in. Went back the day they said and NO plugs :-( they had been discontinued.

                      In my local experience, NAPA is the equivalent of Mac's.

                    $20.00 is a decent price

                      Yeah better than anywhere I found. Of course I jumped the gun and ordered a set from Amazon.

                      have had good luck with the Champ W18 (now 518) heat range for 5.5 head. O' Rielly's at $7 each.

                            by carolinamudwalker
                            Just pulled the plugs after the grandfather mountain tour 900+ miles and the porcelain is as white as snow. TT-10 plugs, car ran great. Added 4 oz MMO per fill up. Not enough miles for the tanning or am I running lean? Also, how many times should you re-use the copper spark plug gaskets?

                            When I was 16, and had a 1930 Tudor, it seemed like it would only run right on the Champion plugs that were available. Over the years, I have been collecting old plugs that would fit. My coupe came with a set of Champion C-4 plugs, which I still have, I have several sets of ribbed Champion W16Y plugs and some singles: A pink Firestone Polonium S-40-CF, A Champion C-4 with a Brass top (with a broken...

                            There was a recent discussion regarding spark plug length and performance.

                            We are not fine point here, and run the Motorcraft TT10 plugs, a known acceptable replacement for the Champion 3X.

                            The pix show the length difference between the newly arrived Jordan J-3 plugs and the TT10 plugs. Also shown is the Jordan box..

                            by wensum
                            My speedster has a modified motor with 7:1 head and twin Stromberg carbies off early Holdens amongst many modifications.
                            It has run strongly for 15,000 miles but is now fouling the front two plugs at idle and there appears to be no spark at idle.
                            I can short out the front two plugs with a screwdriver with only a very weak spark just visible whilst the rear two have a strong spark and...

                            Best Spark plug and Gap
                            by A29tudor
                            Has anyone come up with a decision what they find for the best spark plug for the Snyder 6.0 head and what gap would seem to be better? Just wondering. I have been using an Autolite 3076 for a number of years (20 +) in a Brumfield 5.9 head, was recommended many years ago by Larry B. I now also have the Snyder 6.0 in other engines and wondered if there are other recommendations.

                            I have to change my plugs from MM to regular ford size. I have a set of Autolite 3076, set of Motorcraft F11 and a set of Champion C-16C . What should I use? Is there a table showing various plugs and their heat range from hot to cold? Thanks Grant

                            does a new Champion 3X spark plug need the gap adjusted?
                            if so, do you use a file or dremmal tool?
