The other thing is that even though it is a turbo motor the turbo is threaded for a standard plug. I don't know if this was just a mistake on my motor or if this is how these motors are designed. I have found conflicting info on this matter, however I used a standard hot plug and the motor ran just fine. I hope this helps
Thanks very much for the info! For the price of these things by the time you buy a piston & sleeve and connecting rod (not even counting bearings) for an old engine you get close to the price of one of these! Glad to know that it works well, I will definitely pick one up!
By the way, what exhaust are you using with this?
