    - 2 to post that this group is not about spark plugs and to please take this discussion to a spark plug group.
    - 27 to defend the posting to this group saying that we all use spark plugs and therefore the posts *are* relevant to this group.

    I love the people on the Rotary Wing Forum and have learned a lot here.

    I am always amazed at how willing to help people on the forum are.

    I lean even when they are wrong.

      Yeah. This entry about spark plugs got my attention to the point I was trying to find the spark plugs on my Allison turbine engine. I wonder if some of the other JetExec folks found this information as useful???

        Dunc, you hit the nail on the head, that just about covers everyone on the RWF, except "me" of course

          This is supposed to be a forum on gyroplanes NOT a forum on forum postings. Please take this post to an appropriate forum. And by the way dunc is not even a full name and most people capitalize the first letter on their names so please check your spelling and capitalization before you post here again.,,,,

          By the way... you made my day.

            All forums have there specific dynamics, this one is no exception,I joined six years ago to gain knowledge about gyros in general and the RAF that I had just purchased.

            the amount of good quality information available on this forum is staggering.

              Eddie, I have a newly completed Sparrowhawk 2.5 liter. I have seen that your turbo has been successful. I fly out of 6k ft. Would you mind sharing your turbo information details with me? Thanks so much Stephen Haggerty Cedar City, Utah

                    It only takes ONE RWF member to change the spark plug. He lines it up and the world rotates around him
