Are vintage spark plugs worth anything?

Auto scrap is very valuable and like many other scrap car parts, old spark plugs are not to be ignored. Unless you have platinum scrap spark plugs, both the shell and stud are made of nickel plated steel. The center of the old spark plug has no auto scrap value because it is ceramic.

In 1969, any Chevy vehicle could be ordered with a 350 engine. Spark plugs for the 350 engine are on the sides of the engine, outside the cylinder heads. Depending on the year of the engine, the spark plugs may stick straight out or set at a 35-degree angle.

What are the right spark plugs for a’69 Camaro?

OK, I have seen several references on which spark plugs to use in my ’69 Camaro RS/SS Pace Car 350/300 with the Turbo 350 (all stock). I have a 1970 Motors manual that show AC Delco to be R44 used, but seen others that list R43S. Any body have an opinion or better reference? All my references show R44.

What kind of spark plugs do I need for a 350ci?

Joe look at it like this, if you have a (stock) 250hp 350ci engine and rebuild it to be 325hp you should probably drop the heat range to the next colder plug from what you were using. If you took the 250hp and rebuilt it to 400hp then 2 ranges colder than stock would get you into the ball park…

Where can I buy NGK spark plug boots?

High quality NGK boots made in Japan are an excellent replacement for the originals and feature a water resistant seal. Sold only in pairs be sure to pick up a couple spark plugs while you’re at it.

What are the spark plugs for a 302 Delco?

Im using the R45S as is JohnZ. Runs like a top. Guessing its one step hotter than what Jonesy uses. Standard in the 302 is AC-R43 and cold is AC-R42-1C. Only the 307 and 327 are shown running AC-R45 Standard… I have a couple question if I may interupt.
