Official Kohler number is 52 132 02-S

 

That seems to cross to a RV17YC

What do you guys think about the NGK plugs??  Many years ago I used them in motor cycles because most other plugs would foul out pretty fast and the NGK's wouldn't.

There nothing but junk. Just be careful they don't fall apart in the engine like ours did. Cost E3 a new head, valves and piston in the Saab.

Please don't, did not damage my Briggs but ended the mystery.

There is a reason the MFG stated a particular plug for each engine, too short a plug and it heats up and decays also coulsing pre-ignition, too long a plug and it is too cool, spark plugs are made a certain way to suit the engine.

I have used Champions in my old Mopars (383's), Champion Platinums and Autolites in my EFI Mopars, and NGK in my wife's Maxima.  I am tempted to give the NGK a whirl in the 120 next spring when I get it out of storage.
