Hello All

I am in the middle of some preventative maintenance - put in the LNE bearing yesterday, got the oil separator out today, next is RMS & new clutch with updated release lever, etc.

Anyway, when I ordered parts I thought I would try some Denso iridium plugs which Rock Auto lists as "one of our most popular parts", but I see now that the electrode configuration is completely different to the OEM plugs. They are the conventional type with a single ground electrode whereas the OEM ones have 4 ground electrodes. I guess they will probably work but I am reluctant to use them. Any experiences or comments anyone?

PS the old IMS bearing was in perfect shape with grease seals on and full of oil at 60K miles

We have used them quite a bit, particularly on turbo cars that are hard on plugs and ***** to change out. Iridium's have a single side electrode and a very small diameter center electrode:post-18-0-84365400-1368992996.jpgThe Denso plugs work extremely well, and last a long time.

Thanks a lot JFP - that, combined with getting the new oil separator in, made my day.
