I could use some help finding a good cross on a set of plugs for a 1992 U42T.
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.
Thanks, I will check that out.
Carry ST90 1981 - 1986 F8A 0,9 BPR5ES
bkr5ey fits most mitsu, etc replaces bpr5es
my truck is a 92 mitsu U42T
oil filter napa 1365
air filter K&N 33-2740
spark plugs NGK BKR6E-11 (i use these)
hope this helps
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?
Did you read the other "sticky" on socket
That's all I can offer, maybe Dan or slimbad has some answers
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
Here is the list of spark plugs for ALL Mitsubishi Minicab Trucks & Bravo Vans

Wires for plugs
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
plug wires are the same
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.
Sorry missed the plug part of the last post
heres your plugs in Iridium on amazon
and the Denso list for minicab/bravo
http://www.infodozer.com/catalogs/denso-j/automotive/search.php?model=MINICAB / BRAVO
and for good measure the other vehicles that use the same plug
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
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.
If anyone else can add to this pls do.
To the rest of the members here, I apologize for not contributing more lately.
Hope this helps..........later, slim
