They will last a long time between cleanings. In my experience they tend to never foul so long as there is nothing major wrong with the engine.


I find that chemicals designed for cleaning guns work very well on spark plugs for removing carbon and soot / fuel deposits. Here is a little write up:

What makes the heat range lower on a spark plug? Can something be added in between the wire and plug to boost the heat range on new plugs? I would rather leave these plugs in my collection and use new plugs and have to change them out once a year verses using these nos plugs.



Thank you.
