Well, Yes. I have used anti-seize for years on all my plugs. Have
never used a torque wrench on a plug. Have never stripped or had
trouble hand threading a plug. I just didn't want to get into that
argument. I think the discussion has been very interesting, and am
wondering if I will use the anti-seize next time around.
In my 1100 RS I used the regular 3923 autolite plug. These things may
have a coating as others suggest. I don't know. But they do rust up
very quickly on the outside. So I changed them every 5k in the bike.
Seemed to work for me.
My last ride of the season is scheduled for 11/20 to the Yankee Beemer
breakfast. Then I won't have to worry about any of this stuff for a
while. I will be going into the SO's MGTF1500 just returned to the
road after restoration. Our 100 mile test ride used 4 gallons of gas
and 4 quarts of oil. Most of it leaked out between the flywheel and
block. This should be lost of fun :-(((
