NGK alternative
« on: 27 Feb 2021 at 09:37 »
The NGKB7HS is the plug of choice for the post war MK but:
There are a lot of reports about the failure of NGK plugs recently either the market is flooded with fakes or the coating of the ceramic has been removed because modern computer controlled cars never flood what ever the reason its not good press
Never buying sparkplugs from ebay and seeing that my trusted source the green spark plug company are out of stock of NGKB7HS I turn to wondering alternatives The Green SCPC say Motocraft AE2 any other suggestions?

Hi,

I have added a table of "ZŁndkerzen"  - spark plugs. So you can chose other makes of the same degree.
I ride a "colder" plug (W225) in my MK1, but it depends on the cruising speed you do.

I bought a NGK plug for a different bike recently that had the "10" after it, only bought it as it was next day delivery and I believe it means its set to 1mm gap (I did google it at the time but cant remember) and I'm sure I will be corrected if wrong  :D
