Spark plugs

Post by Duncan.Bradley » Sat Apr 11, 2020 5:10 pm

I need a replacement set of spart plugs for my B. It currently has Bosch FR6D but I cannot seem to source any in the UK. They are a 16mm plug socket as it has a cross flow head with very narrow bores. Can any recommend any other makes?

Thanks

Duncan

Try the Green Spark Plug company. They list something very similar, but they are 14mm? Is 16mm correct for what you want?

Sorry, that link does not open the right page. The plugs do seem to be available though - I will try another link

Thanks Ian. Eventually found a local store with what I needed. Will try green spark next time.
What a difference a new set of plugs makes.

Many thanks
