Default Vintage Spark Plug

Pulled this spark from my barn find 1926 M 1-1/2 gas engine. Though it is old, I never heard of this brand of plug (Janesville). Still throws a nice spark across the electrodes when I trip the magneto. Maybe save it for some future shows once I get the engine running.

Yeppers.. That's a nice plug. Clean it up and run it. I'm always on the look out for vintage plugs to run in my vintage engines. BUT given my Druthers, I prefer hot tube ignition.
