Cushman spark plug

Post by Steve Webb » Sun Jan 12, 2020 12:45 pm

What is a current spark plug number for the husky engine. Supposed to be a 4-73 but can't find out who that is. My 50 series has same motor as 53 airborne. Thanks

Well more digging found a Champion 7 plug and it is now a Champion D 16. Also NGK AB7 listed. Non tapered seat and not a resistor plug so can be used with magneto.

Confirmed it is correct plug. Got fuel stuff all hooked up and just playing around but she started and ran up to 1 minute last night. No linkage and a little rough but it is a start.

Thanks but they are stocked at Advance Auto and my little 1 cylinder 4 hp should not go through a bunch. Although someone doing a search will run across this and maybe for them.
