Hey everyone, so I managed to buy this chainsaw for $20. Runs decent but doesn't idle well. Needs a new plug but I can't find much information on which one is correct. I bought an Champion 850eco plug today but the electrodes stick out too far for me to trust it not to hit the piston.

Does anyone know what plug goes in it? The serial number is 392850001 and the lot number is 10526B.

Will it cross to any other brand?
