    GP is back on the water

    Well went for the first ride of the season a few weeks back. I know I have been away for a while, but good news on my end we had a baby boy back in February so I am now a dad!!!

    I have been stopping in every once and a while to see what you guys are up to. Good to see everyone making progress and not letting go of the GP's and Raider's!

    I pulled the plugs today and I was looking at a few other posts with links to pics etc, but still wanted to get your opinions. Left is the front cylinder, middle is middle and right is the rear. I will pull the head after I put a few more hours on it and get a better read from the wash but want to get an idea for now.

    What do you think?

    Just thinking out loud. I really think plug chops are a thing of the past. I can show you three perfect plugs from a motor that was clearly running lean.

    Yeah I can see how plug chops could be incorrect as there are so many varibles that come into play with doing them correctly.

    Out of all the plugs I like the one on the right the most just because it looks a bit rich and that means I have more of a safety net in place.

    You think #1 and 2 are a bit lean?

    I agree with mrbtd. Piston wash and tach readings are far better judges.

    Congrats on the baby

    and congrats on getting this baby back in the water
