Spark plug user guideline

for 71.018-02 spark plugs (Guascor 7664604 / Siemens 7664765)

 

Proper spark plug installation is very important to ensure optimal performance and safety on the engine. Please read these instructions carefully and always follow the instructions:

 

1./ Safety

Modem engine developments have led to more extreme engine running conditions, expressed in higher combustion pressures and temperatures. As a result of that, the latest ignition systems can provide higher ignition voltages and longer spark duration. This higher concentration of energy makes that nowadays a spark plug has to endure more severe conditions than ever before. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance to follow the guidelines below and the instructions that are provided by the engine manufacturer applicable when working around industrial engines.

 

These instructions should always be followed:

1.1./ Stay away from the spark plugs on a running engine

1.2./ Use the correct spark plug installation/removal tools

1.3./ Never over torque a sparkplug -to prevent damaging its construction

1.4./ Never under torque a spark plug – to prevent the plug from loosening

1.5./ Always use new spark plug gaskets to secure proper locking and sealing of the plug

1.6./ Never install spark plugs that have been dropped

1.7./ Keep spark plugs clean from grease or other contaminants during installation.

 

The installed spark plug type should be correctly chosen for the engine by either the engine- or spark plug manufacturer. Do not install different spark plugs if you are not certain that the plug is suitable for your engine application. Regularly check the physical con­dition of a spark plug to prevent premature failure.

 

2./ Installing spark plugs

Torque is one of the most critical aspects of spark plug installation. Torque directly affects the spark plugs' ability to transfer heat out of the combustion chamber.

 

A spark plug that is under-torqued will not be fully seated in the cylinder head; hence the heat transfer will be reduced. This will tend to elevate spark plug temperatures to unsafe levels, and pre-ignition and detonation will usually follow. Serious engine dama­ge is not far behind.

 

An over-torqued spark plug can suffer from severe stress to the metal shell which in turn can distort the spark plug's inner gas seals or even cause a hair­line fracture to the spark insulator, in either case, heat transfer can again be compromised and the above mentioned conditions can occur.

 

The cylinder head spark plug holes must always be cleaned and the good condition of the threads should be checked prior to installation, otherwise you may torqueing against dirt, debris or defective threads and the spark plug may actually end up under-torqued or improperly installed, even though your torque wrench says otherwise. Of course, you should only install spark plugs in a cool engine, because metal expands when it is hot, and installation may prove difficult. Proper torque specs for both aluminum and cast-iron cylinder heads are listed below.

 

Lubrication/ grease: Using grease is not recommended. However, if some anti-seize lubricant is used on the treads, then a small amount (pea size) should be spread uniformly on the clean threads and the specified installation torque should be reduced by approximately 10%. Also, if some dielectric grease is used on the ceramic insulator, then a small amount (pea size) should be spread uniformly after wiping clean the ceramic insulator with rubbing alcohol and a lint free cloth.

3./ (Re)gapping

Passive pre-chamber spark plugs (PPC) cannot be regapped. If PPC plug stops performing it will need to be removed, using the correct removal tool and exchanged for a new plug.

 

4./ Tools and Maintenance

When re-installing a spark plug, always:

4.1./ Use a new spark plug gasket (see table).

4.2./ Remove dirt and debris from the threads and clean them dry.

4.3./ Remove dirt and debris from the ceramic insulator and wipe it dry

4.4./ In the case of PPC, check that the pre-chamber holes are free of dirt and debris. The cleaning of the pre-chamber holes should be such to prevent pushing any dirt or debris inside the pre-chamber (e.g. always hold the PPC vertically with the pre-chamber holes facing down)

 

5./ Warranty

Tue spark plug is warranted to be free of defects in manufacturing or materials as sold. It does not carry a service time warranty due to the uncertain nature of the application in which they are placed, and their normal operating service life may vary considerably per application. Damage due to non-conformance to the user guideline, physical abuse, exposu­re to excessive temperature or moisture conditions or misapplication is not covered by this warranty.

 

6./ Disclaimer

The spark plug manufacturer / supplier does not accept any responsibility for consequential damages from falling plugs in the engine, as a result of:

6.1./ Incorrect handling or improper installation of the spark plugs

6.2./ Uncontrolled (ignition / combustion) behavior of the engine

6.3./ Spark plug wear

6.4./ Any other impact including the quality of the product
