Autolite spark plugs

I just bought plugs for my bike from Advance Auto, the closest place to my house. They were like 1.89 a piece and the tip of the plug you have to screw onto the spark plug. Is this common, or just because they are cheap?

That's the connector end correct? That's normal, the adapter is not always used.

I wouldn't use them. Read this post - this guy had them melt, one of them actually holed his piston. It's worth the couple days wait and few extra dollars to get the NGK.

I go along with AJ I would not use them plugs even if they were given to me free. I gave up on them over 30 years ago, they are cheap because they are cheap.

My closest Advance Auto sells the NGK iridiums for right at $7. O'Riley charges $6.60. Mine are supposed to be in tomorrow.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
