How many Forum group members does it take to change a spark plug?

1 to change the spark plug and to post that spark plug has been changed.

14 to share similar experiences of changing spark plugs and how the spark plug could have been changed differently.

7 to caution about the dangers of changing spark plugs.

27 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing spark plugs.

15 know-it-alls who claim *they* were in the industry, and that "spark plug" is an electrical device threaded into the cylinder of an internal-combustion engine to ignite the fuel mixture by producing timed sparks between electrodes.

2 to post that this group is not about spark plugs and to please take this discussion to a spark plug group.

27 to defend the posting to this group saying that we all use spark plugs and therefore the posts *are* relevant to this group.

16 to debate which method of changing spark plugs is superior, where to buy the best spark plugs, what brand of spark plugs work best for this technique, and what brands are faulty.

2 to post URL's where one can see examples of different spark plugs.

12 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the spark plug controversy.

4 to suggest that posters request the spark plugs FAQ.

16 to post "F".

44 to ask what is a "F"?

4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

3 to say "do a Google search on spark plugs before posting questions about spark plugs".

1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again....

Misc / Open / Engine testing out of frame
« on: December 21, 2017, 04:36:07 PM »
I recently got a lovely genuine 9000 mile F1 engine, 4 years ago i bought the whole bike minus engine  , the guy bought the  bike for the engine then sold me the rest , anyway having never used the engine he contacted me and asked if i was interested in buying the engine
So i have a lovely 1976 9000 mile f1 in bits , i
Iifted the rocker cover and it's immaculate so clean, I decided as I have about 10 engines to do I might as well build a portable test rig
I have lashed together a functionable rig and will give my engine a test
Its not finished yet and it will have fan cooling and temperature gauge and oil pressure gauge, it uses a full set of electrics so I can test every thing from alternator to switch gear check the loom , regulator and rectifier etc
Also I can dial in the carbs get them spot on
when I am done I will have an attempt at painting the engine in one piece  then on too the next engine
