    SBC spark plugs

     



    Hi all , im new here and thot i would post a question. I have a 1970
    350. Pretty much stock, points ignition, eddy 1406 on an offy 360 intake. What brand plugs do you all prefer ? I put ac R44t in and had
    A dead plug in 2 different sets ! Are autolite any good ? Having a
    Hard time finding champion plugs that cross to an r44t. Any suggestions ? Can we say streetrod on this site ?

    Can you post a picture of the plugs? Ac and autolite are your best bet in a chevy motor.
    What did you gap the plugs at ?
    Champions do not work well though.
    Also, being new here, you have to refresh the page to see updates.

    Dennyw. Thanks for The info. I gapped them at .035 I have no photos , I returned each set to the part store. I know parts arent made as well as in the past but it seemed weird that 2 sets from the same place would have a dud. I put autolites in it and it seems to be happy with them. I never ran autolites in a gm engine but so far so good.

    Good deal. Sometimes on the shipment that parts stores receive come from the same batch made. That has happened to me in my early days working on vehicles. I switch stores, or brands, and bingo. Glad it took care of it.
    Autolites are good plugs. Although mainly used in Ford products, there making standard is great.

    33plym,
    Welcome to CHR! Yes, you can say Street Rod here!

    Sadly your experience with the old conventional AC plugs isn't a surprise these days. Their QC has become really, really bad! The old days of AC being best for GM, Autolite for Ford, Champion for Chrysler just doesn't ring true for me any more, and if you look at what Chevy/GM uses today you'll find it's mostly NGK, Denso and a few with MotorCraft. From Chevy forums they seem to be leaning to NGK as being the best all around plug for the Gen 1 350 SBC. For me, NGK has been my plug of choice for close to 20 years now, and that's what I run in my Ford 347 stroker and what will be in the 350 ZZ4 if I ever get that one finished!

    When you have time, post some pictures of your Plymouth! It's kind of dated now, but here's a link that gives the basics of posting into a thread. I find the Gallery to be a PITA, mainly because everything is just in a common list and finding anything specific is a hassle.

    Rspears, thanks for the info and I’m happy i can say streetrod! I was going to try ngk but they had to order them in so i took the autolites. They’re working well so they can stay right where they are. If i can figure pictures out I’ll definitely post them.

    Thanks again

    I've decided to post a picture thing for uploading pictures from your computer. The other way is by linking to another place where you have photos. Roger's explanation is good, but sometimes seeing it with pictures is helpful also.
    This allows 1 picture at a time, up to 5.

    Now for the other 5...The settings can be changed by the web owner, but he has a limit of 5 at a time.

    Thanks. Yes, looks very nice indeed. Was that a certain brand of paint used ? I used to paint years ago. hahaha

    I plan on doing my 34 truck up like this, and using rainbow flake in the fenders, with wrinkle black trim.

    It was painted 21 years ago !! Its laquer and its cracking as would be expected. Too bad because it was a beautiful paint job. Your truck will look great !! Isn’t it amazing that cars and trucks from the 30’s are still good looking vehicles.
