Models RB105-1 And RB114-1 Have Long Insulators For Extra Flashover Protection

A unique cooling process is why BG plugs last longer. . .

The foremost way that spark plug manufacturers change heat range of a spark plug is to change the length of the ceramic nose - the length measured from the sealing gasket downward to the firing end. A shorter ceramic nose makes the spark plug "colder," but also makes it more prone to fouling because the electrical path is shortened. Only BG uses cast silver in direct contact with the ceramic insulator to facilitate cooling - this allows BG to offer "colder" spark plugs with adequate nose lengths to prevent fouling.

All new BG spark plugs include a gasket. The ability of a spark plug to seal gas leakage and conduct heat depends upon the condition of the gasket. When reinstalling spark plugs, always use a new gasket.
