Kohler+Champion=DOA?

Recommended Posts

Lately, Ive had seriously bad luck with Champion sparkplug number H10C.Infact,5 plugs in 4 different engines. All the plugs just died like they fouled out, but didnt have any traces of carbon,gas or oil fowl on any of them. And all the engines have been the cast iron Kohler singles, One 10hp.(K241)..One 14hp.(K321) and Two 16hps.(K341)...There has to be more to this phenomeona than my usual run of the mill BAD LUCK.. Have any of you had similiar experiences with the H10Cs in any of your tractors? If yes, please reply to this post. Thank you Marc....

I have not use H10C sparkplug. In the past I've used champion plugs in my mowers (Briggs, Lawnboy power)and several autos. In the late 80's early 90's champion start producing plugs overseas. (same time I start having fouling problems) I start using Autolite plugs and having great success. All the motors that have Autolite plugs start easier and run better. Price is about the same as champion.

Marc, I still run the H10C in my Kohlers. I haven't had any problems. I never replace one until it starts acting up, which is usually several years. I did buy a Prestolite last summer that only lasted one month and totally died. Replaced it with an old H10C and it is still running good.

Alot of times Champion plugs will fire if you remove them from the head and check them for spark using the ignition wire but under compression will not fire!All the way inside the plug by the porcelean they crack.In automotive applications they were notorious for fouling and not clearing after a good run.Countless times the plug would seperate top and bottom.By the electrode the porcelean tip would crack or foul.Chrysler always used Champion plugs and their cars were famous for wet weather no starts.Enough said about that.I've had tremendous luck with Autolite platinum plugs.Once they are in they have never had to be changed.
