I think there's a set in the '32 Chief engine I have on the shelf, but I would suspect they are just "hole fillers"- someone will probably chime in whether the plugs from Starklite are correct for a '32- or you could contact Gary Stark and ask him

Good article by Red Fred in the recent AMCA issue mag on Indian plugs. I believe in that article there is discussion on which plugs were used for which year if your after original plugs.

Correct plug for 32 chief is an original Champion 13. It is 18mm, not 14 like plugs from 34 and on when indian changed to 14mm plugs. Marty

For anyone needing help with finding old spark plugs, join the Spark plug collectors of America. Super cheap dues [$25] and get the magazine the Igniter. Ads are free. Probably best way to find what you need. Lanny Baron, who was at Oley, is the President. He always has lots of great plugs at the meet. That's why I'm joining.

Don McKinsey was very helpful with my spark plug research. He is one, if not the biggest, collector in the states with over 80,000 plugs. Marty
