I am needing to replace my plugs in my 92 164l not sure what to use. Any ideas???
Good old Champion N9Y (or RN9Y with resistor) - what the old FIAT 128 1116cc saloon used to use, over 20 years ago Yes, the one you see beside me in 1989, jacked up on tyres in the driveway.Disclaimer: I don't do S engines so don't know much about correct plugs for them.
However, for the 164B/L engines I use the one heat range hotter Champion, RN9YC Automotive Spark Plug, Stock #415 or Autolite AP64. I don't pay those big bucks for sparkplugs.
I found RN7YC plugs to cold for my high mileage cold natured engine but I don't boy race it too much anymore with both my advancing age and that of my car.
Note: That the higher the number, the hotter the plug with Bosch and Champion. The reverse is the case with NGK.
The AP64 plugs are single platinum tipped I believe. I don't believe 4-tipped plugs much better. It seems with unleaded gas plugs last me a long time.Good old Champion N9Y (or RN9Y with resistor) - what the old FIAT 128 1116cc saloon used to use, over 20 years ago Yes, the one you see beside me in 1989, jacked up on tyres in the driveway.
So - special small-point platinum plugs don't give a better spark? Wouldn't four-electrode plugs last longer?
I agree. NGK/Champion for the L model is fine to use. Equivalant to Champion number.Hocus Pocus IMO. Double plat's last the longest but don't deliver the hottest spark from what I've read.
That's pretty funny! A guy that lives next door to my ex father in law bid and won a 60 foot self propelled cherry picker on ebay once. The shipping was murder because it had to come on a semi. I asked him if he bought it to look down his chimneys.About 10-12 months ago I was drunk bidding on Ebay
