Champion spark plug (RCJ6Y).
Insert a spark plug gap tool in between the thin metal protrusion at the top of the spark plug and the round section below it. Homelite string trimmers require a gap between these two parts of 0.025 inches.
The Champion RC12YC is a spark plug from the Copper Plus series. It is designed for riding lawnmowers, pumps and generators with 4-cycle engines. This standard spark plug is made of nickel alloy eletrodes with a copper core.
The most important detail in a spark plug is matching your engine`s design. Copper has high conductivity and low price, but also a shorter lifespan. Harder platinum and iridium cost more, but were designed to last longer, but remember, the best fit is always the one designed for your engine.
The gap setting is different for each vehicle but most are somewhere between 0.028″ and . 060″. Consult the owner`s manual or Champion ® catalog to find the recommended setting for the vehicle you`re working on.
One of the key factors that makes a spark plug work well, or not, is the size of the gap between the electrodes. If the gap is too small, the spark will likely be too weak and cause the engine to run poorly or with poor efficiency.
The more worn or dirty spark plugs are, the greater the pull on the rewind and more effort is required to produce an adequate spark. If you haven`t turned on your engine recently, your mower won`t start and/or you have to tug repeatedly on the rewind to start the engine, a damaged spark plug may be the culprit.
As a general rule, you should change the spark plug approximately every 100 hours. This may vary across brands and specific models. Check your Owner`s Manual for specific information on how often to change the spark plug and the proper gap setting. Check the grease/oil in the cutting head gearbox often.
