Default SPARK PLUG TIPS

Posted already about doing the plugs, wires and thermostat.
Somewhere lately I had posted about looking a t my old Champion 7570 plugs, cleaning, and reducing the gap to .38............where the PT barely stated, and ran very rough afterwards.
I ended up going back to the .45 gap.
Same today with the new plugs.

Question today is:
I don't remember the wire tip on my past Champions looking this small.
DOES THIS LOOK NORMAL? OR, ERODED?

It's normal, not eroded. What the hell type of Champion plugs did you get, Frank? That doesn't look like a copper core plug to me. Looks more like a platinum tip. If so, they're very small like that. Try the gap at .042. If it were mine, I'd stay with the OEM copper core plugs. Change them every 30,000 miles.

Those are the plugs I pulled OUT of my Panel Van!
Those were Champion #7570.

I put NKG V-Power plugs in today.
Runs great!

The only Champions I've ever seen like that were platinum tips. I don't like platinum plugs in a Mopar. I've always gotten my best results with a Champion copper core plug. As long as you're happy with the way yours runs with the NGK's, stay with them.
