It ran fine as you see in the video,,then something went awry. this morning my buddy Russ Hill stopped by. He saw the garage door open. What's up ? Plug not firing.. I hooked it up, gave it a yank,,,Russ says no spark. I handed him another plug....Great spark !! WTH ??? I held the plug up to the window and there it was ,,a FINE line of something. Reggie had told me he had hand filed the electrodes,,,and there was the problem. While filing he had magnetized the shavings.. Eventually one bridged the gap....


Interesting. I'd think spark current would melt away such a small sliver.

A simple volt meter resistance check without even pulling the plug would find something like that but I've never heard of anyone checking resistance.

Wonder what the resistance range of fouled plugs would be?
