[ROVERNET - UK] spark plug question.

Hi Ben
I have been using NGK spark plugs for over 30 years and have had very good
service from them in all sorts of cars and trucks, doing all kinds of
driving.  The plugs in your car are a bit on the hot side and this may be
ok for the type of driving you do.  NGK heat range numbers start with 1 =
hot and go to 10 = cold and the Champs run 1 = cold to 10 = hot.  My old
NGK book shows Champ. N6Y = NGK BP8ES.   How do the plugs look?  That will
tel you the hole story about how these spark plugs are doing in your car
with carb. and ign. set up that it has today.  Other codes in the NGK spark
plug type are: B=13/16" hex, P= platinum electrode, R= resistor, #= heat
range, E= 3/4 reach and I can not remember what the S means.  Hope this
helps some.  Take care.
