Sparkplugs are cheap - just replace em.bman001 said:Service manual thinks the plugs should be cleaned, filed and re-gapped every 5K. I'm wonderin' if I'm just asking for trouble messin' with this rather than spending a few bucks on some new ones. What are your thoughts?
Good luck.. I had one of these years ago and while they made the plugs look like new if they had been fouled or had stopped firing, this machine will not help them run better at all.... Just my experience...JRS said:Can't disagree with just replacing plugs once a year or so.
But I just picked up a cool air-powered spark plug cleaner at Harbor Freight for < $20. It makes old plugs look almost new.
I have a lot of small engines in my garage, and each one takes a different plug, so this may work out well, especially for the 2-stroke engines. I may even try it on the bikes.
