the ngk that were mentioned.
funny thing is why the rear and why both failed. (twin plug)
if they were around anymore, i would buy a set of fire injectors, based off avaition plugs.
they had 6 ground electrodes and a pencil size eraser center electrode and were self cleaning. i ran the same set in three vehicles and probably had 400k miles on them till they started misfiring.
got them in the 60's from jc whitney, they were made in england.
