  • Spark plugs

    It seems as if my mini is running a little rich and has fouled a spark plug! My question, what is the preferred brand of spark plug for a stock 998? I checked to see what was in the car last night and found Champion and NGK, that can't be right. Thanks for the help.

      The BP6ES seems to work very well in a wide range of Minis and for a wide range of tuning. Just remember to gap them before installation.
      The more I know about Minis, the more I know I don't know about Minis.

        Has anyone tried the newer iridium type of plugs with good (or bad) results?

        My brother-in-law (a Ford powertrain engineer) seems to think quite highly of them.

          Thanks guys. The NGK BP6ES did the trick. Looks like I will be able to drive the mini this weekend.

            Some how I don't think it was the spark plugs! The mini is having a problem running after starting and wants to die after you let the clutch out and under load. Where should I start, points, carb, muffler bearing? Any help would be appreciated.

              Based on your first post, could be carb mixture. Try leaning it a couple of flats and check for improvement. Having said that, I would start with the basics; timing, ignition, valve settings....
