    Nice how to info.. How often do they recommend changing plugs on the 4 strokes? They should last quite a while.. (I hope)

    cleaning

    If you have your plugs left in your engine over the winter should you clean them for the new season. If so with what ?

    I asked around Dr. Len...was told to just stick em in just how they came out of the box...so thats what I did...the thing fired right up and ran SMOOOOOTH!

    I think common practice is to look and see if the plugs ground electrode are right, and inspect to see if they were dropped, that would certainly change the gap...I always inspect mine and check the gap...PR...
