Spark Plug Cleaning

5 posts in this topic

I know this sounds like a daft topic, but some of those fancy plugs out there get damaged real easy.

A bike mechanic (& good friend !) has told me that by wire brushing some types of plugs damages them.

What do you lads do ? - Clean or pop a new one in (can get rather expensive when messing with the jetting & sooting the plugs up !!) :)

stick them over the gas cooker for 5 mins. at first they burn blue but after two or three minutes they burn orange and that's what cleans them up.

I can vouch for that but note that the plug will turn 'white' as per a hot running lean condition spark plug. No problem, but beware if you rejet and examine this re-used plug, dont to be fooled by the white tinge.

If you don'r feel like getting burned by a hot plug, you can spray em down with "easy-Off Oven Cleaner" and in an hour they are completely cleaned and ready for re-use. They will also read correctly when re-used.
