When you say top of the plug .....do you mean where the HT lead is fixed?

Hi Keith, Nothing wrong with senior moments tells you that your still looking down six instead of looking up six.!

Sparkplug threads.....I do not have a clue they might be UNC or Metric. Personally I would email Tim Green at the Green Sparkplug Company he is a helpful man and he will sell you them at the same time.

All the best from "sunny Scotland"

Some are UNC and some are Metric, depends really on the plug manufacturer. My 18mm NGK plugs have a different thread to the Champion and Lodge ones.

Hi Villiers, you say they can be m4/2ba or unc its more complicated than i thought,I guess I need a nut of M4 size of a known pitch say 05 if it fits ok we then know the pitch if it dosn't then it will be 07 pitch.Best Regards from Sunny Yorkshire Keith.

Sometimes another bolt/screw works better as a makeshift pitch gauge as they are longer.  Occasionally on the smaller sizes the clearance and "shortness" of the thread in a nut can allow them to seem to fit a range of pitches.
Cheers. Darryl
