FYI to all.
Continuing reports on the Triumph Herald list of problems with misfires, fouling
and general poor running of our engines when using Bosch Platinum plugs. The
recommended is Champion 327/RL87YC

RL87YC SPARK PLUG 4 Pack


Manufacturer: CHAMPION SPARK PLUG CO.
Part Number: CHP RL87YC


David:
Per your recent posting I cannot fine a part number as listed "327/RL87YC".
Do you know if the part number is actually only RL87YC and the 327 may be a
reference number. Thanks

Yes, the correct plug is L87YC. I think the 327 is a reference number. Never
fit the N9Y to a 1200 engine although it's often listed for early Triumph
Herald/Spit.

I show both a RL87YC and a L87YC. Are these the same plug? The prices seem
kind of high are these rare or discontinued items?
Thanks for the tid bits.

Mike, The R is resistance, it's meant to supress radio interference, I've never
bothered with them but they would work if you can't find L87YC, the C part is
copper, you might find L87Y which were the original fit but I don't think they
are made anymore.

The L87YC is very common here, my lawnmower uses one, it's also used in
Landrovers and (I think) the Rover/Buick V8

Had a quick Google and they are less than $10 for 4 at www.shipstore.com

Most people here prefer to use Champion but an alternative is NGK BPR6HS, I did
try a set and they seem fine.

Good spark plug info guide here.
