186500

NEW Bosch single electrode spark plugs. Old ones worn to between 035 and 040, whitish
IMG_5981.jpg
Last serviced at 167000 miles:

Running NGK Cu plugs with 27000 miles on them. Car was running well, but gap had grown to over 0.040 inches. Spec in manual is 0.030 inches and many here recommend 0.028.

I regapped to a tight 0.030" fit.

Thinking back I'm not sure I checked gap on plugs out of box, but that was in a long since overwritten piece of RAM
