    I thought after I finally had my Folder running, I’d check and see
    what spark plugs it’s suppose to use.
    According to the early Evinrude / Elto chart, it takes an AC-G8
    spark plug.
    It’s the only AC plug listed on the whole page. All others are
    Champions.
    The next model years of the same motor are shown as taking
    Champion M6, and I believe that’s what was in it when I got
    it.
    It ran yesterday on Champion D16’s. I haven’t tried to determine
    yet if that’s a similar heat range as the M6’s.

    I find no reference to any AC G8 plugs on the Net, but
    am basically just curious if anyone has ever heard of them,
    and why the 1929 Folders had AC recommended when
    all the rest touted Champion plugs.
    Perhaps the AC president slipped someone a few bills?

    Not sure if I have those or not, but the last AC 18mm plugs I
    bought didn’t have / use the washers…… must have been
    a “Ford” thing.

    It needs the plugs with the shorter insulator because of the lack of clearance. Champion didn’t make a plug that fit properly WRT clearance inside the aluminum cover that they have to sit behind/inside. You can use 6M or similar Champion plug but its kind of a pain to get the spark plug leads on. The AC number that I use is 82-M.

    Hope this hemps.

    Best,

    I misspoke when I suggested the C-87. It is a
    long plug that I use in my other Super Eltos.
    I have D16 in mine as well. Having a shorter
    plug would be a plus for the reasons T2 has
    mentioned. I’ll be searching for 82-M’s. Thanks
    Chris.

    Thanks Chris and Tubs. I think I have run across old 82-M’s before.
    Suppose the “M” is for “Marine”?

    I’ll keep on the lookout for those, but the D16 are tucked in for
    now for a long winter’s nap.
    I’d like to tuck in for winter as well….. nasty snow storm going on
    right now.
