Interelectrode gap of a spark plug

Check by a template of an interelectrode gap of a spark plug

Before removal of spark plugs to remove dirt, using a pure brush, the vacuum cleaner or compressed air that prevents hit of dirt in engine cylinders.

1. To remove tips of high-voltage wires from spark plugs, and it is necessary to remove for a tip, but not for a wire.
2. To unscrew spark plugs.
3. Check of spark plugs shows a condition of the engine. If the nasal part of the isolation center of a spark plug pure and white, it shows that mix too poor or "hot" spark plugs are used.
4. If the tip and a nasal part of the isolation center are covered with a firm black raid, it shows that mix too rich. If black and oil probably that the engine is worn-out.
5. If the nasal part of the isolation center is covered with an easy light brown raid, then mix is optimum, and it is probable that the engine in good shape.
6. The probe to check an interelectrode gap of a spark plug.
7. The interelectrode gap of a spark plug is important as at too big or too small gap, the size of a spark of ignition and efficiency will be insufficient for normal operation of the engine.
8. For installation of an interelectrode gap to turn in an external electrode before receiving the required gap. Not to bend at all the central electrode as it can split the insulator.
9. To carefully wipe a carving part of a candle and to grease with antiprigarny structure.
10. A hand to screw in a spark plug, having excluded its distortion and to tighten the required moment. Moments of tightening of spark plugs:
      – the OHC engine – 25 Nanometers;
      – the DOHC engine – 20 Nanometers;
      – Nanometer V6 2,9 - 40 engine;
      – Nanometer V6 2,4 - 30 engine.
11. To establish tips of high-voltage wires on candles and to check reliability of their installation.
