Spark plugs

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to know of those of you that have changed out their plugs have you replaced them with the Iridium type as what is original or gone to the standard type plug.If you have switched to another type have you noticed any change in performance?

Thanks,

Are you saying that the Iridium type is standard? if so, I'm impressed. They lasted over 90,000 miles in my GMC Yukon with a 350 in it.

No what I meant as standard was the regular type spark plug,I refered to the Iridium as the original or plug that was in the engine when I purchased the vehicle from dealer.Sorry if I made this more confusing then intended.

Have not seen a post of anyone changing plugs. On a positive note, even standard plugs last forever now days with lead-free gas unless you wet the plugs because of an engine problem. Will be very interested in what you do and if you are having problems with your factory plugs. Good luck!

No problems,I just decided to pull the plugs to take a look at them and to be honest that was the first time i had seem an Iridium plug(guess i gotta get out more) and was surprised.I then checked with the Part,Pieces folder Kinarfi has and saw that they are listed as replacents from NGK.Not being familier with them is why I was asking.

      Can someone tell me how much oil the Buck 400 holds. Also, doe the Buck 400 have an oil filter. I am in the process of changing the oil for the first time.

      Howdy all,
      I searched the forum (and the internet in general) for this and didn't find anything that looked like an answer.
      I purchased a Coleman 550 from Tractor Supply last October.  Runs well.  Really only one issue that I have had and that is a dragging brake pad.  Still haven't fixed it, but hope to soon.
      For now, it is time for the first oil change (38 hours).  After some reading, I decided to use Mobil 1 4T 10w-40.  I also purchased a filter from motorcyledoctor.com.  Got the filter and noticed that there is a hex head on the end.  I thought "Hey that's nifty, but I wonder why they did that?".  Then I went to change the oil and I know why now.  Which brings me to my question.
      How in the hell is one supposed to get that oil filter off?  First off, it is not obvious how to take the seat base out to get leverage.  I thought about cutting out the plastic above where the filter is.  But decided against it for now.  I tried my best to work within the tiny space given to get the filter out.  I have a number of different filter wrenches.  Only one is able to fit over the filter.  But ... I could not get the filter to break loose.
      So, I ordered a strap wrench from Amazon.  
      https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MZH57V5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
      In case that doesn't work, I also ordered this:
      https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FVNH2QV/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
      My intention with the latter is that if the strap wrench does not work, I will punch a hole or two into the side of the second product.  Put it over the end of the filter, put two screws into it and hope I can break it loose.
      Anyone else experience this incredibly difficult task?  I have always worked on my own vehicles and have had some difficult circumstances, but I always prevailed.  Not this time.  The Coleman 550 b*tch slapped me this weekend and is pointing and laughing at me.
      Any suggestions or recommendations would be great.  If nothing else, just some content on the subject so that someone else who might be having the same issue can find this and get some ideas.
      Thanks,
      CC
