I have a 403 at about 7:1 compression or a little higher (old LP gas power unit with GE30E H-C heads). The heads use the big old plugs. I just stuck some junk plugs in it to keep water out. What's plug number do I use? I won't use champions, but I can convert from a champ number. I think I used W13 in a U gas.

I probably will eventually. A buddy put my sawmill LP 403 in Dad's GB gas and needs plugs to fire it up. The 40 yr old plugs don't work too well. Two of them fire...sorta lol.

Just picked up some W10 champs. It was the only brand they had 4 of. $30! Not sure if the heat range is too cool.

Mopower,
Try Autolite #3076 in those 7/8"-14tpi holes. Long ago I decided to stop using those Chumpion fishing sinkers for plugs.

Happy motoring.
Charlie

Charlie Biler,
Next time; proofread something before the big fat finger hits the send button. #3076 plugs are 7/8"-18UNS. That fourteen threads per inch thing is for fine thread 7/8" bolts, not spark plugs.

No more Dr Pepper for you.
