I looked all over to find a reference for the plug to use and it looks like a RC12YC is the one and I did put that in. The threads are messed up in the hole I don't know if that would be enough to throw it off in to the travel of the piston. So it will need a helicoil to repair that.
While I had the plug out I put my finger on the hole and cranked the motor, it seems to have decent compression but it a nasty looking brownish liquid in there. It does produce a good spark.

I think the head should really come off and I should run a tap through the spark plug hole and then put a helicoil in there, the threads are pretty sad looking.
Has anybody ever ported and polished the head on these? Is there a source for a nicer looking exhaust? I'm thinking a pipe that goes down and to a horizontal muffler.
