Tecumseh shows .030 for cj6y and cj8y, so .030 should work for cj7y.

The winter snowblower engines should have should have a rj19lm champion plug (B2lmy NGK for a V groove plug) if this is the flathead engine. The ones you mentioned are colder plugs & will foul sooner. Thanks, Roger

Great ! We knew it was a 2-cycle from the plug no.
(Never could get my boy to do anything around the place)
If you need anything else, don't hesitate.......
