  • spark plug question

    Hello guys and girls, I pulled out some old ac delco plugs out of my 60
    Hawk, should the new autolites be the same size? Or does
    It matter now...g

          AC plugs were typically recessed tip plugs. Most Champion plugs and the Autolite 437 are extended tip plugs. Thus, they may look different. I agree with StudeRich - Autolite 437 is the best - I have used then for years with total success.

            If the old AC plugs are either 43LS or 45LS, they are the correct plugs for the standard Studebaker V8's Many people will use an AC 45 or 45S in Studebaker engines, but they are not the correct reach for Studebaker heads. Bud
