    Dave,

    In your case, what caused the lack of compression? How many hours were on your motors?

    Dave,

    I love how the posts of the skeptics are from people who probably haven't tried the E3s. I haven't seen a post yet saying "I tried them out and they didn't live up to hype!"

    Just sayin

    What kind of fuel are you using? If you are using fuel with ethanol, I wonder if it can make the rubber tip on the needle swell up on you. I know that fuel with ethanol can cause havoc on black...

    The BR8HIX has a needle like center conductor. The BR8HS center conductor is cylinder shaped. Over time the BR8HIX needle like conductor wears away therefore increasing the plugs gap. I hope this...
