"Great thanks Tim. That's the answer i was looking for. Do you know where its written the plugs apply to Vortex only? I havent seen anything documented that clarifies this"

Tim Ellis replied to Benno's discussion Cadet 9 2018 Rule Clarity - Spark Plugs
"Plug rules apply to Vortex. A Comer uses a short reach plug for a reason and a B9EG or other long reach plug will most likely make your piston somewhat lighter and turn it into various different shaped pieces."

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going
through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you
immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I
found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public
site.Could you please get back to me on:(anna_kokou@onet.pl) for
the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mrs. Anna Kokou.
