Thanks XFi. I got your washers today. I didnt expect them to be copper (but duh what else would they be) I dont know why. I think I may have some of these in my basement from when I moved in the house. I will have to go take a look. I will work on getting they on this weekend. Thanks again, Jack

No problem...if you have extras after indexing, share the wealth and pass them on.

side gapping

maybe someone on honda tec has something differnt to say, but at least for honda engines, I've been told that side gaped plugs are not affective, that you just need to index them, but that some other engine designs do benifit from side gaped plugs, when I was at our local little airport the other day checking out a friends little airplane that was getting it's annual inspection I noticed that they use a really weird looking spark plug that has the duel side gaps kind of like bosch +2 plugs, of course they are not so much concearned about clean burning, or effcent, but more so long lasting and anti-fouling, and from what I've read in SAE books, side gaped plugs are not as effecient, but they are difficult to foul.
