Suitable Replacement Stihl 017 Spark Plug
The spark plug is a device for delivering an electric current from the ignition coil to the combustion chamber to ignite the compressed fuel and air mixture. The Stihl 017 spark plug has a threaded metal shell and a porcelain shell with a electrode in the center and a ground electrode.
The high voltage from the ignition coil travels through an insulated spark plug wire to the terminal on top of the spark plug, then travels down the electrode threw the porcelain insulator to the ground electrode which is connected to the metal bottom body of the spark plug and is screwed into the cylinder.
Spark plugs can either have a metal gasket to seal the spark plug to the cylinder or a taper spark plug to seal the spark plug to the cylinder. The heat from the Stihl 017 spark plug is dissipated to the cylinder to help keep the spark plug cool.
When a tune up is done on a chain saw be sure to replace the Stihl 017 spark plug for top performance and use the correct spark plug per manufactures recommendations for your chain saw and gap the spark plug to the proper gap per the chain saws manufactures recommendations if necessary.
