  • David R Walker says:

    Looking for information on AC Blue Top Spark Plug 84. Recently came across a box of 10. Any info would be appreciated.

    • Lanny says:

      Hi David. These are 1930’s-40’s vintage and cross to a Champ 6 or 6-62; a modern Champ D-14 or D-16. They have lots of apps, especially flat head Ford V-8’s and lots of period tractors. Regards, Lanny B.

      • David R Walker says:

        Thank you for the information. Is there any value for a case of ten? I have listed them on e bay, but have had no takers. I would love to see a collector be able to add these to their collection. If you are aware of any possible collectors that might be interested please have them to contact me at this e mail address.

  • Scott Hobbs says:

    Have a collection of 53 old spark plugs mounted on a pegboard (no boxes). Some are pretty nice but sorry, they all go as a group if anyone is interested, not selling separately. Wife is making me clean out the closet. This is a good way to obtain a large group at once if you are just getting started collecting.
    To mention just a few… REX, Blue Blaze, Sterling, Bethlehem, CR, Mosler, etc…. Can email you the entire list of 53 and pictures if interested. Respond to

  • Andy Sager says:

    I recently found some NOS Blue Crown M9X x-citer plugs at a thrift store. I am trying to cross reference them to their Champion counterpart but am having no luck online. Anyone know what the Champion plug number for these would be? Im wanting to use these in various vintage small engines (B&S, Lauson, Wisconsin, Clinton) to name a few.

    • Dennis Trevathan says:

      The 1953 Blue Crown Heat Range & Conversion Chart shows M9X / M9 Champion Conversion is J11, J11J* The 1954 Blue Crown Heat Range & Conversion Chart shows M9X / M9 Champion Conversion is J12, J12J*

      *Special competitive gaps for Outboard and other 2-cycle engines. Replace only with Blue Crown Xciter Plugs which are designed for both 2 and 4-cycle engines.

    I don’t know much about plugs. But I’m assuming somebody from your club knows or has seen one of these?

  • Tom Yankey says:

    I have a collection of spark plugs that my father had for a long time. I do not have an interest in keeping them and they should go to a collector. What I have are the following: Zenith brand spark plugs of the following types. Two boxes(20 total) and 13 single boxes of Zenith 78A. Five boxes(50 total) and 11 single boxes of Zenith 18B. Seventeen boxes (17 single) of Zenith 18D. Eleven boxes (11 single) of 18T. All are in the original boxes and have been stored inside a building. I would say that almost all of the boxes have never been opened. Photos can be provided at your request. I have no idea of the value so an offer would be considered. Contact

  • Hi, I am looking four antique Bosch spark plugs to accompany a 1904 DU-4 Bosch Magneto that I am currently restoring, if anyone has four of the same Very early Bosch spark plugs (possibly from that era), I would be more than happy to negotiate a purchase price, thanks in advance.

  • Susan says:

    Sorry, I hit the wrong button. Anyway, I have an old spark plug that is incased in what appears to be acrylic or a form of plastic. It was used as a keychain by my is small, about 3/4 of an inch long. The casing is about an inch and a quarter long. Is this worth anything as a novelty of some sort. It is over a hundred years old.


  • This collection of spark plugs came with a 1924 Chevrolet Touring car I bought as a restoration project. Several of them look very unique and have features I have never seen on a spark plug before. I am not looking for prices but am interested in selling them to someone that knows their historical significance and value. Any help with a proper place to advertise/offer them would be appreciated. Thank you.

  • marcelle says:

    I am trying to find out who to contact to give me an idea of what I have found washed up on one of our california local beaches. It is a spark plug, looking very old. In fact, part of the outer brass around the tip is completely rusted off. It is an almost yellow orange white, stained I suppose from the rust. If you take a magnifing glass you can just barely see writing, can’t entirely make it out. It has 2 rings then a space of about a 1/4″ and then another 3 rings and it is brass. It also has what looks to be rock or lava embedded in between a couple of the bottom rings. Could this piece be a historical ancient artifact or just my wishful thinking?

  • Terry Lohman says:
