Put New Spark In Your Lovelife

Postby After Taxes » May 30th, 2015, 7:48 pm

My love affair seemed to be going ok, and she started whenever I asked, but I thought I'd check on the spark that keeps us going. The specs on the Mercruiser 6.2 call for AC spark plugs, #41-932. I haven't had her since new, but with the hours and look of the plugs, I'm guessing these are factory originals.

I plan to love this gal for a few years, so I figured I'd treat her to shiny new sparklers. Gals go crazy for shiny stuff. The 41-932 which I believe were Platinum, are no longer available. The replacement is AC 41-993 Iridium. They were readily available at my local auto parts shop for $9.00 a piece. I think that's expensive, but these are the ones in new cars that go 160,000 km before replacement. They are not supposed to easily foul. I'm trusting that my fuel mileage will be somewhat improved, if not optimum.

I only put in four today, saving the others for another day. Fun reaching up the starboard side of the stbd engine, because I sure couldn't see the plugs. BBQ Dinner got in the way.

4 down. 12 to go.

The title of this thread made me a little nervous :captain2:

Steve,

The threads and shoulder on the new one look like they might thread in further than the originals. Back in my automotive days we had an issue with Champion plugs doing the same thing. You might want to check how far in those plugs thread....
