I just got two NOS T spark plugs in one of my favorite brands for $10 each including shipping. That's a good thing!

Sometimes the planets align and things just go your way. Other times... not so much. Congrats!

Too bad Royce didn't mention the brand he uses! I've been using Old Stock AC 26's for years, and like them as well as the Champion X. I believe AC discontinued the 26's in the early 70's.

Speaking of plugs, how many folks grabbed a couple of the great reprints of the Champion plug charts that were being given away at Hershey? I don't remember the vendor's name, but their large white tent was at the end of the aisle that the MTFCA tent was at. :-)

Mark, We got a couple of those Champion Spark Plug charts & I found out something interesting on them. I've been interested in Champion 31 plugs for awhile. The have the same pipe thread & look the same as Champion X's, but say "31" on them instead of "X". On that chart, the 31's are used on many engines, like Avery, John Deere, Waterloo Boy, Reo, and many other tractors. A spark plug dealer at Hershey told me that the 31's are probably a slightly higher heat range plug. I'm collecting 31's now and when I get a set, will try them out in a T.

BTW, that chart includes Champion 3X plugs used on Model A's, so I would guess that the chart was originally printed in about 1928 to 1931. Just a guess.

Keith

You're right Keith, the chart is marked May, 1930.

Good seeing you and some of the other members at the MTFCA tent at Hershey this year!

I scanned both sides of the chart and posted the scans in a separate thread. :-)

Larry,

"Too bad Royce didn't mention the brand he uses!"


If you had taken the time to look at the link you'd see they're AC's.
