Best type of spark plugs for chainsaws
« on: April 10, 2011, 10:56:12 PM »
Just wondering what is the best make of spark plugs for chainsaws.  I know with some of the new materials in the past 10 years they have improved upon them.

Has anyone had any luck with the newer spark plugs and do they add any advantage?

Sorry if this topic has been brought up before.

Thanks,
Tom

 so long as a saw run good I can't see a plug adding any advantage.   Steve

  I will buy Bosch if they don't carry Bosch, then I will go for NGK. I have bought Champion in the past but they seamed to not last as long as the Bosch plug.

Depends what country those Bosch plugs are made in. I ordered a box of 10 from Baileys a while back and found they are made in Brazil. Had a few duds already after limited use. Never had that problem with the Boschs I've run made in Germany.

NGK by a long way, they seem to outlast anything else in the chainsaws, ATV, and mill

I've always found all spark plugs to be pretty much equal, the only exception to that is Champion. I think every spark plug I have ever fouled was a champion, I'm not real fond of them. I usually use NGK, between a Husky 346, Jred 2165 and 2171 I have never fouled a single plug in any of those saws. I know my 2171 still has the original NGK plug in it, I think I have had that saw 4 years and I run my saws a little richer on pre-mix oil, too. My 2165 still had the original NGK in it when it threw a rod bearing, I might have changed the plug in the 346 when it melted down and got rebuilt ::) I don't even think about spark plugs anymore.

She sputters, acts erratically, and won't "ignite your fire"? Sounds familiar.

Whats next, China? Yes I have a few India ones too.
For a matter of interest I still have a couple of brand new in the box Bosch WS6  plugs with " West Germany" on them.

I got some older NOS Bosch that still has the brass colored screw on tips.  The rest of the newer ones have silver tips.

Yeah have tried a few ,  one within my lawnmower and another on snowmobile . Probably to soon to tell , I usually get a few yrs use with both examples. I know that they have sure reduced the price from when they first were introduced.

have always used bosch cause thats what my stihls have had in them from new and have never had a dud. Hardly ever replace them, only replace them when it looks like they are starting to get blowby or I think I should just for the sake of doing it.

I found no difference with the E3 vs. the standard NGK or Bosch. I'm also not a fan of Champions. We bought a new set to put in the woodsplitter (Wisconsin VG4D) and they worked very poorly...barely any change from the old ones they were replacing. We took them back to NAPA and exchanged them for a set from AC Delco and haven't had any troubles in roughly 1.5 years.
