I hate to admit it Wayne, but I'm with you. My eyes went immediately to the tip and skipped right over the threads. Signs I'm slowing down I guess!

Just put a little JB Weld on it and hammer it in. Good to go.

Thats because you are still used to seeing sparkplugs coming with the silver cardboard over the threadswinking smiley

I believe Champion intended to install this spark plug using the sealing bushing from a RB fan thermostatic switch.

Same as Swamper, I've been using Champion plugs for decades. I've never received a defective one. I use them on 4 of my classics. NGK on some others, and AC on one. Yeah, that AC. smoking smiley

I switched to NGK BP6ES about6 years ago, on various blogs & the advice of my NAPA counterman, who advised that Champion was fine for lawn mowers,
snowmobiles (which are very few in Louisiana), but for performance use NGK in your MG's.

You get the most clever posting of the year award, no matter what happens in the next eleven months.
