MASSIVE ELECTRODE SPARK PLUG
Aviation Spark Plug With the most automated manufacturing processes and the most innovative spark plug in the aviation industry. Made in USA.
High Conductivity Copper Core Center Electrode copper, co-extruded inside a nickel alloy sleeve ensures outstanding heat and electrical conductivity while the nickel sleeve offers high resistance to corrosive combustion gases.
High Alumina Ceramic Insulator high mechanical strength, superior dielectric properties, proprietary protective glaze, provides high performance to conquer severe operational conditions. "Clean Collar" massive electrode "V" tip focuses heat to reduce fouling and enhance heat range control.
Proprietary Glass Center Seal 21st century 'fired in' resistor replaces the multipart screw, spring, carbon pile stack up used in competitive plugs and known to suffer from resistance value instability that can cause misfires, wasted fuel, engine roughness.
Nickel Finish environmentally preferable electrolytic nickel provides outstanding durable finish, superior corrosion protection, and extreme wear resistance.
Nickel Ground Electrodes aviation grade nickel electrode design focuses on minimizing sparking voltage requirements while maintaining specification gaps to ensure large, stable 'flame kernels' for on-time ignition and complete combustion.
Vacuum Infused Center Electrode proprietary, vacuum infusion process seals electrode/insulator gap providing stable heat range and superior center electrode cooling (heat flow to the insulator).
Hot-Lock Assembly intense pressure and heat create positive, zero-leakage, shrunk in seal between insulator and shell to contain the hot, high pressure combustion cycle gases.
Harness Wire Contact smooth, uninterrupted, oxide treated spring contact surface offers enhanced corrosion resistance, is chemically bonded to the fired-in resistor providing the ultimate harness/spark plug termination integrity and energy transfer.
Just went up about 2 bucks again quietly :/, went to auto zone for socket to fit these, found a deep 7/8 socket for oxygen fitting with split down the middle for about $13.00 that fits perfect.
Nice product, better than champions, but. Flats on the plug body are lower than the champions profile and it took me to three different sources before I found a 7/8 inch socket that would fit the plugs . Hint:: Stick with the standard plug profile.
Excellent product. Comes with gap needing to be fine tuned.
Very fast delivery. Aircraft Spruce has always been excellent. Well packed spark plugs .. shipped quickly. Ive been an occasional customer for the last 30+ years and never had a problem.
Iâ€™ve always used Champion plugs, but A&P recommended I switch to Tempest. Appreciate they are more affordable and after 10 hours, they are working very well still. Hope they hold up!
Tempest are good quality plugs, better than Champion according to most everyone I ask.
Great so far. Replaced all the top plugs in a o300 with massive and went with the fine wire on the bottom. Woke the old 172 up a little. Got rid of some stumbling.
Each Tempest spark plug will come with one copper gasket. Any additional gaskets must be purchased separately.
Yes, the Tempest UREM40E is a direct replacement for the Champion REM40E. Both with work in the same applications.
The heat ranges actually overlap each other. You can use either one.
