Volunteer to try URO spark plug tubes/seals

Recommended Posts

I'm getting ready to change my spark plugs.  I've been reading up on the spark plug tubes and it makes sense at the least to change the two rubber O-ring seals. 


URO parts get no respect around here - probably for good reason.  But I thought I'd step up and see what their spark plug tubes/seals are like.  RockAuto sells them for $2.76 each, and that includes the plastic tube and both O-rings, purportedly made of Vitron (better grade rubber). 


Here's what came in the mail today:




I'll compare the plastic tube with the OEM Porsche parts when I pull the latter.  At least this gave me the opportunity of a bench top fit-check for my spark plug wrench and the rubber boat transom plug used for pulling the tubes.  I'll reserve judgment on the plastic tubes but think that URO probably just buys bulk O-rings from someone standard.  At this price it's the cheapest way to get the O-rings even if I have to toss the plastic tubes.
