    BKR6EK are cheaper and will do the same job, but i think ours is also running on BKUR6ET's at the moment.

    the T means triple electrode, rather than the double of the K

    the U is apparently "surface discharge type", whatever that means.

    Cool, they're in and it no longer seems to be blowing the spark out so job jobbed. Quite a bit of oil on the plugs which is a little worrying. Can't say I relish the thought of a looming engine build

    wet oil?

    Might just be the rocker cover gasket?
