Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • AC Delco Spark Plug 41-932

    Hi all,

    Want to replace the plugs in my 2004 Mercruiser 5.0 MPI. Currently have AC Delco 41-932. Called my local auto part store and they advised that they only have two left and can't get anymore because they were discontinued and replaced by plug # 41-993.

    Last time I bought something at this store they got it totally messed up and so I don't really trust them anymore. Can anyone confirm if 41-932 was superceded by 41-993?

    Thanks.

    They are correct, 41-932 is no longer available and 41-993 is what you want for that engine.

        Newer Mercruiser engines don't come with MR-43LTS plugs anymore? Why not marine spark plugs?

            I believe they started to ship all small block engines with AC 41-932's (which is more or less the platinum version of the MR43LTS) in 2002. A lot of engines were shipped with 41-932's even though the engine sticker called for MR43LTS's. The platinum plugs extend the service interval to 300 hours and perform better with the Mototron ignition systems on the MPI engines.

            Just in the last year or so they replaced the 41-932 with the 41-993. I'm not sure why.

              In my limited experience, if you have a carbed engine these tend to run on or diesel more than the MR-43LTS, so get them out and replace them.

                Thanks for the history lesson Dave! I knew they were the platinum tipped plugs, cause my Impala has plugs numbered like that. And they say 100k in a car, well, mine were still "perfect" with the exact correct gap after 115k in my 04 Impala. I can't imagine how you could wear them out!?

                    Sorry to dig up an old thread but would anyone know what the gap setting would be for the spark plugs in a 2004 Mercruiser 5.0?

                      Then don't dig up old threads, start a new one of your own. You also need to list a serial number, year doesn't really work.
