Iv'e been searching for the the right spark plug for my Tec. HH150.. The manual says an L-7..

 

There is a L-86c in there now,,and wondering if it might be too hot.. I would like to try the cooler L-7.  just to see if it runs any better,, or different..

 

  What are you people useing in your'e Tec.s  AND what is a good replacement for the L-7  ??

 

                                                                         Thanks               sodi

Yeah those spark plug charts are crap at least all the ones I have found are.Seems like every plug maker says something different.
You could try a colder plug and see if it runs different wount hurt anything,the most it would do is foul out and you would only be out $2.Might work better in the hot weather when your working the engine hard.
Let me know what you come up with.
