Hello all,

 

Anybody tried these yet? Seems the promises they provide are a little too good...kind of like the old split fire plugs. I don't know if its ok to post links or not, so I'll let ya'll google them.

In the automotive world they are a waste of money.

Hello all,

 

... I don't know if its ok to post links or not, so ...

 

If you aren't the retailer, it was ok all the times. But the mods know better...

I bought one for my 401 a couple weeks ago. Last year I burned up 2 or 3 champion plugs in parades and I'd start to worry in the middle of a parade. LOL I've only run the 401 about 5 mins so far this year so we will see how well they work

I have a troy-bilt tiller that was fouling plugs fairly rapidly. Started with Champion, then Bosch, Then NGK, then finally the E-3. E3 lasted the longest and i noticed a slight power gain. Companies do tend to make claims that are too good to be true, but I find that the E3's are better and worth a try. BTW, I had the Splitfires in a 91 ford ranger in high school with a 4 cylinder with 8 plugs and they made a significant difference in the power in that truck!

I'm still stuck on Champions, since that's all that my Farmalls will use. 

 

However, I have heard a few good stories about the E3.  I don't think they make them in 18mm thread yet, do they?  Most of the applications I would like to try them on use 18.

Installed them in the 460 in my F350. They didn't do anything for the fuel mileage, that truck gets  9 mile to the gallon no matter how tuned it is. I did notice it starts a little quicker. I put them in and ran it before I did the rest of the tuneup just to see.

I noticed that on the pack they say replaces multiple spark plugs but doesn't say what heat range they truly are

I have pair of e3.10 plugs in the Briggs & Stratton 18 hp opposed twin on my 1988 Craftsman ( the Caterpillar) and they made a huge difference in starting faster. I took that tractor plowing with the E3 plugs in it and it seemed to perform pretty well. In my opinion, worth it if you have tough to start engine.

Thanks for the replies,

 

I hope they come out with a marine line, I have a mercury at work that has a hard time starting and idleing...I rebuilt the carbs and put new reed plates in it over the winter, and it helped, but it still isn't right.
