Question about 2005 Triumph Sprint ST

1 Answer

Dual electrode spark plugs

Triumph recommends spark plug gap be set at 0.7mm with a gap tolerance of +0.05/-0.1mm and recommend NGK CR9EK which is factory set at 0.65. Should I alter this to 0.7 or fit as is?

Gap it to 0.7m You do not want to close the gap too much or it will burn to hot and faul your plugs too soon. Make sure your useing a metric gap. If you have a thousandths gap gauge, go to between 27 and 28 thousandths of an inch. Here is a conversion table for you to print out.

I recommend only H-D plugs myself.

Check electrode gap with a wire-type feeler gauge. Bend
the outside of the electrode so that only a slight drag is felt on the
gauge as it passes between the electrodes. The proper
gap measurement is 0.038-0.043 in. (0.97-1.09 mm).

Inspect the electrodes and ceramic insulator.






  • Burned or worn electrodes may be caused by:




    • Advanced ignition timing


    • Loose spark plug


    • Plug heat range too hot


    • Insufficient cooling









  • Fouled plug may be caused by:




    • Retarded ignition timing


    • Oil in combustion chamber


    • Incorrect spark plug gap


    • Plug heat range too cold


    • Excessive idling/low speed running


    • Clogged air cleaner element


    • Deteriorated ignition coils












2.


Check the electrode gap (A). If the gap is over the standard, adjust the gap with suitable gapping tool.







Electrode Gap




Standard (New):


1.0-1.1 mm (0.039-0.043 in.)












3.


Replace the plug at the specified interval, or if the center electrode is rounded (A). Use only the spark plugs as listed.

Need do know the spark plugs gap


If you're replacing the spark plugs in your car engine, you'll need to set the gap before reseating the spark plug. The gap is the distance electricity arcs between the ground electrode and center electrode. The gap must be set correctly to ensure maximum performance. Here's how to set the gap of a spark plug.

  1. Remove the spark plug wires. Use a socket wrench to remove the spark plugs from their chambers.
  2. Clean the spark plug if you are not replacing it with a new one. Remove all dirt and debris from the spark plug.
  3. Check the owner's manual for your car (or any appliance with spark plugs) to find out the recommended gap setting.
  4. Use a gap tool to check the gap of the spark plug. Slip the tool between the ground electrode and center electrode. The gap tool should fit snugly at the recommended gap width indicated on the tool.
  5. Push the tool between the electrodes a few times to ensure proper gap. If the gap is too wide, push the ground electrode firmly against a flat surface to narrow the gap and then check again with the gap tool.
  6. Repeat Step 5 as necessary until you reach the correct gap. Reseat the spark plug and reattach the spark plug wires
Good Luck

What is gap setting for autolite double platinum spark plugs for 2003 Honda 3.5 engine?


Hello there:
The recommended spark plug gap for a 2003-2004 Honda Odyssey is .044"
Keep in mind, many OE manufacturers (i.e. Denso, NGK) pre-gap their plugs for specific applications. If you happen to buy the iridium or platinum style plugs with the very thin center electrode, they should come pre-gapped. It can't hurt to check the gap before installing the plugs, but if any adjustment is necessary, do so with caution because the ultra-thin electrode may crack if any excessive pressure is placed on it.
Hope this is very helpful
Best regards Michael
