    Default Indexing spark plugs for ETEC

    I recently watched a video on YouTube, where this guy said if you purchase the recommended Champion plugs from an Evinrude dealer, the washers are set for plug to index correctly.....What say u?

    They will have the same Champion part number on the box.

    Bring him 2 boxes and ask him to point out which box has the index capable washer in it.

    Indexing is done by placing (usually copper) washers of varying thickness on the spark plug shoulder, so that when the spark plug is tightened, the plug will rotate a certain amount, and gap will point in the desired direction.

    I don't know about ETEC, but it sure made a difference when I was building Honda race engines. I built 1600cc engines for the IT-C class. Mostly stock, with minor "enhancements" .
