    I could use some help finding a good cross on a set of plugs for a 1992 U42T.
    Thanks, Scott

    Scott, I got this cross reference with my truck from the people I bought it from. Plug: NGK#BKR-68, OIL filter: NAPA 1356 Hope this helps, although I cant be positive of accuracy.

    I tried to get my plugs out by grinding down the socket so it would fit. I couldnt get a hold of the plug...it just kept spinning around without grabbing the plug. Am I missing something?

    The 550's call for BPR6ES which i found to be a 13/16 socket instead of the 5/8 that most are referring to. and it had to be thin walled to reach the plug. I've been using a snap-on socket with universal built on to it. The jdm's may be different...

    I was given NGK BP5ES by my mechanic in Taiwan for a 3G82

    Wires for plugs

    Hello all,

    I am wondering if the plug wires for a U42T will be the same as U42V?
    I bought some wires n plugs from a shop in Medicine Hat that thought the air filters were the same.... (they were not even close) so wondering about the wires n plugs I bought. I haven't put them in yet.

    wondering if anyone had any thoughts or insight.

    any info would be appreciated

    wires might be the same but according to the yokohama pdf here the plugs are not.

    I have a set for a U42T and not putting them in as my van is U42V
    If anyone needs some for a U42T let me know.

    thats great

    should I go irridium for new plugs?
    whats better about them?

    Iridium has a tiny super hard electrode that supplies a sharp precise spark and is very resistant to fouling..they also last much longer than normal plugs..pricey,but seem to be worth it ..my Hijet loves them:)

    plug gap

    I am trying to figure out the proper plug gap for my van.
    Is there a resource somewhere?

    Would my plugs be properly pregapped?
    I'll post the brand I got in an edit soon.

    I read .09mm is the default.

    any info would help

    Mits U42V plug gap


    I got your PM ref/plug gap. I decided to reply in open forum (to get QC from others).

    Your plugs "DCPR7E" are good, and a gap of 0.9mm shud be correct. On my 550cc (3G81) the manual says 0.7-0.8mm (that's .028-031in - for us south of the border).

    As far as the plugs coming pre-gapped - I always check them, a lot of times they are pretty good, but I have found some of them completely closed:eek:.

    If anyone else can add to this pls do.

    To the rest of the members here, I apologize for not contributing more lately:eek:.

    Hope this helps..........later, slim

    The iridium plugs, are these for the U42T or the U42V? Thank you in advance.

    I would think that the plugs for one are the same as the other since the engine should be the same.
