I'm using Champion truck plugs.

X2 on Champion.

I use Autolites. I mean, you are using a mostly Ford ignition, why not go all the way and use Ford spark plugs?

Champion #4412!

I have never seen any mention of using a different type plug than the stock number in any of those write-ups. Just open them up to 0.045 from 0.035. I use either the standard copper plus or the truck plug (both Champion).

Well, you might ask me, since I'm 'TeamRush' that 'Jeepz.com' gives credit to for the upgrade! ;)

And you should use a PREMIUM spark plug for your year/type of engine.

If you have an '81 CJ with a (guessing) 258, then get an Autolite Premium plug for an '81 CJ with a 258.

Gap should be between 0.040" and 0.045" after you do the large cap and tall rotor upgrade.

If you have a V-8, you should upgrade the ignition coil to an E-core coil.
If you have a I-6, then the coil is an option, and not completely a necessity.

NOW!
Bear in mind that your 28 year old ignition module might not live up to the new parts and new demands...

Consider using a 'Stealth HEI' if it quits on you...
That's simply taking the 'Guts' out of your existing module, and substituting a GM HEI module for the Ford 'Guts'.
Costs about $25 and takes about 2 hours to do.

In fact, I'm addressing some module questions over there right now as we are communicating... As 'TeamRush'...

I use Autolites or NGK BKR6EKs if it pings.

KEITH! That is the CLEANEST I-6 Engine I've ever seen!

I only have one qustion...
Shouldn't there be a 'Jeep' wrapped around it? :rofl:

keith460 01-10-2009 06:33 AM

Well, that engine didn't always look like that!

I'm still working on wrapping that Jeep around that too.

dalefan388 01-10-2009 06:33 AM

i got all of that when i do mine. (dont have a garage and its cold) but im keeping my stock coil for now and bought a adaptor from msd you put in your coil to have the tower thats matches your new wires. i think the part was #84039.

Bubba Ray 01-11-2009 04:21 AM

dalefan, did that adapter work for you? Where did you buy it?

dalefan388 01-11-2009 02:23 PM

i ordered it though my work at advance auto. if you go there and ask for it make sure your talking to someone who knows what there doing. they have to get the # out of the msd book.
