What would be a better replacement for a Torch F6TC spark plug? Local options are Autolite or Champion not to sure about NGK.

Crosses to a NGK BP6ES. My little HF Generator runs well on NGK plugs. It did not run well on the Autolite Crossover. I'd go with NGK over Champion or Autolite.

I ended up having to get an autolite as that's was the only thing available and I wasn't wanting to waistband couple days for justca plug. The motor seems to be running better. On a side note O'Reillys gave me the wrong plug they said the BP6ES crossed to a B6HS, wrong, they both have different thread length and diameter. FAIL, I'm going to be a Napa guy from here on out!

NGK is the best plugs, far better than the [censored] torch plugs those things come with.

I agree but I wasn't going to waste a free day off over a spark plug, I have an autolite in my Husqvarna mower and its running on its third season no problems.

Many autolite plugs are made in china now. Imo they are not much better than the torch you took out.
