Default 20-40 Rumely

Just playing around with my G and had a few ?'s What plug(s) can and will work and where can a fella get them? I'm 99% sure I got the mag timed right, but just wanted to be sure. How does a guy go about timing it?

John there should be a metal pointer on the side of the block, it will reference with the timing marks on the flywheel. you want the mag to trip at just past tdc (the flywheel will be stamped 1dc and 2dc) you dont want the impulce to trip a the spark stamping

as for plugs you can still get the champion W89d plugs they are the right ones as they have a long reach, or have them crossreference over to Autolite or AC delco the choice is yours

Autolite 3077 or AC 18 is the crosses for W89D. I use the 3077 in my Allis E's.

That's where I've got it, so I'm not near as dumb as I look

I grabbed 3077's from NAPA and used them in my lightweights. I couldn't get them to thread in on the G. The threads looked different. Maybe I am as dumb as I look

The current number for the Champion W89D is 589.
I haven't had ANY luck at ALL with Autolite plugs....... .......and I know some will say the same for Champions (or pick any other brand) so there you go.......

I guess the threads on the 1 head were _____. The 3077 went right in the other side fine. The plug that came out of the one head had a pipe taper on it (or looked like it), that's what was throwing me off. A little bit of cleaning and persuasion and the new plug went in fine. The 3077 autolites that are in my W seem to be doing fine but so are the champions in the M stationary. I had better luck finding the autolites when I needed them so that's why I have them. As long as the stuff runs I guess.

Jon & the group,
We have been running the 3077's for over ten years now with good results. What we have found is that when you shut the engine down if you open the compression release and "Blow" the oil and non combustables out of the cylinder the engine seems to start better the next time.
Jon, I do not know if you noticed or not that we also have a squirt bottle set up with a little water in it. we do not use the water or the tank we just use the water bottle to keep things clean.
I will say the when you give her a shot of water that you should expect to get a shot of crap out the exhaust. well that is what we have noticed. We do try and watch to make sure that the ladys and the light colored clothes are not around when we do this.
Take care Matt
