In the following equations, be sure that you use the same units throughout, to minimize that type of error. I generally use meters - kilograms - seconds. Beware that items like a rocket's exhaust velocity are often given in kilometers per second, instead of meters per second.
Two strokes are a slightly different beast, and are often misunderstood. First, when it comes to reading two stroke spark plugs, forget most of the charts you see on line.
Those pictures are of four stroke automotive spark plugs! Second, always err on the side of rich, rather than lean! Also, read the next paragraph, and let it roll around in your mind while looking at the rest of this Two strokes receive all of the engine lubrication through the oil mixed with the gas.
Carburetor jets are a precise fixed orifice, they pass a certain amount of fluid. Jetting is the act of changing that set amount of fluid flow.
This is a hard concept for a lot of folks to grasp, but changing the oil to fuel ratio changes your "jetting" also. The fixed orifice flows the same amount of liquid, but changing the make up of that liquid effectively also changes the "jetting"!
Keep this in mind, it' will come up again later. But, onto and back to spark plugs! OK, here goes These pictures will probably, almost certainlybe different than what you usually see.
Because what is usually shown are four-stroke automotive plugs! First, let me show you a few different types of plugs you will probably run into, and a few you may never see.
The first, is your "garden variety" standard spark plug, that most of you probably have in your bike: You may also see the next kind of plug, the fine wire electrode spark plug. Most of these will be made with an "exotic" metal like platinum, gold, copper, etc. They are usually priced a little higher, generally fire better under adverse conditions, but really don't make a noticeable difference over the "standard" plug The next plug is a multiple ground electrode spark plug.
No real difference over a "standard" plug, but a new twist to improve on firing under adverse conditions. The last plug used to be a very popular "racing plug" when CDI ignitions first came out about 25 years ago. If you do much "vintage" bike restoration, this type came stock on the early Yamaha and Suzuki MX bikes.
It's a surface gap or retracted gap spark plug. Another thing to watch is reach or the length of the threaded shank of the spark plug. Generally there is three different reaches of spark plugs. If you have any doubt over what you need consult your owners manual, shop manual, or worst case, pull the head and look!
Time and money wise, you are way ahead doing that than breaking a piston crown, and risking a bent rod! Here's an example of the different lengths.
OK, lets look at the kinds of things you'll see while getting your jetting sorted out. The first picture is of a correctly jetted plug.Champion(R) Spark Plugs, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Team Up in Aggressive New Ad Campaign The spark plug is a key engine system component, playing a major role in fuel economy, efficient combustion and the reliable operation of engines and catalytic converters.
Hi,These NGK Iridium IX Performance Spark Plugs will not work with GTX heads, Ford recommends using AGSFC spark plugs or their equivalent, NGK V-Power Spark Plugs - Heat Range 6 Item #, or Autolite Racing Spark Plugs Item # Harley suggests replacing the spark plugs on your M8 every two years or thirty thousand miles, whichever scenario comes up first.
See how to replace Harley Davidson spark plugs on your own! SPARK Improve the robustness of Spark Streaming WAL mechanism SPARK write ahead logs from streaming receiver are not purged because cleanupOldBlocks in WriteAheadLogBasedBlockHandler is never called.
Clearly someone in engineering said, "Ya know, I'll bet there's a better way to access the plugs," when they went from the 4th gen to the 5th. I just listed the steps, if I sited the manual, I would have had to write . I recently turned on write ahead logs for our Spark Streaming application and I am getting serialization exceptions for log4j (shown below).
