Digitup,

I see what you mean.I looked at your pics and they would look good if they had the side to square them off. I may just fix up the old ones. I will price the materials and make a decision from there.

Thanks,millertym2.

Hi stan, I have never really looked at the fouled champion plugs. When they foul they become hedge parts. Hedge parts are when they mess up you take them out and throw them in the hedge row in behind the house. I think a JD M would be better for a garden rather than a allis. But just my two cents. T...

I have talked to plenty of people and about 98% of them say that champions foul out all the time. I have even put hotter champions in and they still foul out.

Lavoy do you have any of the black handles that screw on the levers? We kind of had a casualty when taking off the lever. Thanks,millertym.

We named him Carl after his grandpa and me. I really tried for Logan but she wouldnt go for it. Now on to business. I pulled the final drive off again(which takes a total of 30 minutes).
