    Default Changing a spark plug

    How many forum members does it take to change a spark plug?

    1 to change the spark plug and to post that spark plug has been changed.

    14 to share similar experiences of changing spark plugs and how the spark plug could have been changed differently.

    7 to caution about the dangers of changing spark plugs.

    27 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing spark plugs.

    15 who claim they were in the industry, and that "spark plug" is an electrical device threaded into the cylinder of an internal-combustion engine to ignite the fuel mixture by producing timed sparks between electrodes.

    2 to post that this group is not about spark plugs and to please take this discussion to a spark plug group.

    27 to defend the posting to this group saying that we all use spark plugs and therefore the posts *are* relevant to this group.

    16 to debate which method of changing spark plugs is superior, where to buy the best spark plugs, what brand of spark plugs work best for this technique, and what brands are faulty.

    2 to post URL's where one can see examples of different spark plugs.

    12 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the spark plug controversy.

    4 to suggest that posters request the spark plugs FAQ.

    3 to say "do a Google search on spark plugs before posting questions about spark plugs".

    1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again....

    If you read this far... Merry Christmas

    Don't forget the 5 that insist that we have to remain on the original topic of spark plug changing.

    Thank God, my tractor is a diesel. That's one reason I DID NOT go gas. There aren't that many people out in my area to assist in changing plugs, etc,etc................

    Anybody fix/replace injector pumps, water pumps, hoses, fan belts, etc.... in your area?
    Diesels engines have most of the same components as gas engines.
    Changing spark plugs is a 20 minute job, maybe necessary every 700 hours.
    Gas engine ignition systems are electronic.
