    I took a spark plug and removed the porcelain and modified it for a standard dial indicator... I don`t know the OD of the dial indicator stem yet, but the hole can be modified again... I could drill and tap for a set screw when I know the final hole size for the gauge...
    it`s not perfect, but should work...

    made another fitting after reading most stems are .375

    Thank you William ... I`ll know more if they are going to work when the gauge gets here... this is the one I got...

    and I found another company that sells them:

    google search sucks... I found that site after the fact and spending hours searching the web...

    Very cool. How do you thread it in and out of the plug hole?

    not sure about your ?

    when I get the indicator I plan to either make it a specific use tool and permanently attach the gauge to the plug thread adapter or drill and tap for a set screw.
    I first need to make sure it will fit into the adapter and go from there...

    The spark plug shell is hollow and needed to be filled in to make it not sloppy and a way to affix the gauge... hope that answers your question correctly

    I saw that one john. I need one with a gauge so I can rotate the engine back to a determined depth for the timing mark...
