Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

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.

    If youre going to use NGK's in an Evin / John carb'd motor, make sure to richen up the mid and hi speed slightly to compensate. If youre going to use Champions in a Merc or Yamaha be aware they'll probably foul pretty easy.

        My old (74) Merc kicker calls for Champion (OEM owner's manual). The local merc guy sold me an NGK plug before I got the manual and saw the Champion spec. I think that's because Mercs generally call for NGKs. I've now used the NGK and the Champions for quite a few hours each, and with my use, see no differnce in starting, performance or fouling (99% trolling) - but I use the Champions anyway since that's what's called for and I do understand there are real differnces even with "equivalents". This is a surface gap plug, can't think of the number off hand.

            Has anyone tried Bosch super 4 spark plugs in a 2-stroke outboard?

                  Sounds like you're looking for an NGK to put in an Evinrude or Johnson. If so, be careful. Be sure to richen up the jetting as mentioned. Damaged pistons can be expensive.

                    claude, heed the advice given by Dhadley, or you will, at some point, be looking for new pistons for your over-haul.....

                      Thanks guys. Actusly It was not my intention to run NGK, but the motor I bought had NGK's in it I changed over to Champion QL78YC. The next time I go to the lake I will get the # of these NGK plugs to see what the Champion equivilant would be.

                              a BPR6HS NGK plug should be OK for the QL82YC and the QL78YC should convert to a BPR8HS or BPZ8HS-10.Happy Boating
