May be worth having a word with Hugo at Rowena Motors, he is the carburettor King!

The main source for Tanaka stuff in the UK  is Farm and Garden Claymore but they hold most of the stock at head office in Dublin

The TAS Motor (Tanaka) does look to have copied some features of the Ohlsson & Rice Compact engine, I'm not sure if your drill has the P5 or P7 engine, there doesn't seem to be much info on these on the web, even Hitachi Power Tools (they acquired Tanaka in 2007) don't have any manuals going back that far on their website. They do claim they "Introduced the world’s smallest industrial general-purpose two-cycle engine- P7 (22cc)" in 1962, the O&R Compact engine dates back to at least 1961 (1.26 Cubic Inches or approx 20.65cc).

The history mentions that Villiers (misspelt Villers on their website) had a licensing agreement to manufacture the P7 engine.

 

Also your drill isn't exactly the same as the other Tanaka drill on here;

I just acquired an ice auger with a TAS P7 Engine. Does anyone know the correct spark plug for these?

 

Thanks,

Clint

Is there a model number anywhere for the Auger itself? Does it use a 10mm or 14mm spark-plug and what is currently fitted?

 

I did find some Tanaka manuals on manualslib.com;

https://www.manualslib.com/brand/tanaka/

Of which this water-pump looks to have a similar sized but slightly newer looking engine, it uses the 14mm NGK BM6A spark-plug (which is often found as a replacement in the later O&R engines, as an equivalent to the Champion CJ8);

P.S. Seems like there was a Tas Motor P7 manual (1973) available, just need to find someone that still has one.

Hello David,

    I just got your messages. Thank you very much for the links to the manuals, I’m anxious to check these out. The spark plug that is currently in the engine is a 14mm- I tried a standard Champion CJ14 and it fit fine. I’m not familiar with the brand, could be some off name cheapo.

The E3.10 spark-plug seems to be sold by places like 'Homedepot' & 'CanadianTire', does it say on it where it's made? (I can't read the text on the bottom half of it), also it looks to be longer reach than the CJ8 or CJ14, so check it doesn't hit the piston if you use it.

 

The comparison chart on Amazon suggests this plug is not the correct replacement for a CJ8/BM6A or CJ14/BM4A;

David,

   The E3 plug has a US patent number on it but that’s it.  It looks to have similar depth but I think I’m going’s to swap it out for the NGK or Champion plug.

 

Thsnks,

Clint
