    Spark plug question for SHO

    I have about 40 hours on my SHO. Should I be removing plugs and applying anti seize before they get too many hours on them?

    It's allways a good idea to use anti seize on your sparkplug threads befor instaling them. This is real important since the sparkplug is steel a the head is alum. so the won't become locked together from the heat and engine combustion in the cylinder.

    I changed mine at 25 hours (no anti seize) with out a problem. I could see how after 40 or more hours you would want anti seize on the threads.

    Mine were on the ski for 110hrs & came out easily, but a little anti-seize won't hurt. Also a good idea to spray some rust inhibitor down the holes in the valve cover after the plugs are reinstalled. Mine had some corrosion down there...most likely the water was getting in while spraying down the engine bay after riding in salt.

    Re: Plug

    Changed my plugs with no issue, added anti seize and sealed the plug wires to cover since salt water was getting into hole. Pain to get water, dry salt out once hardened...

    Here's a few good threads I have bookmarked with info on j-gapping & indexing. Most of them talk about results on the GPR, & I've never tried it on the SHO so can't really tell you what results to expect.
