The "standard" Champion plugs I've found cracked/chipped insulators new from the box. I like the bubble packaging at Walmart, you can see the insulators and make sure they are good before purchase.

The problem with the Mobil AV-1 was not that it was "synthetic", but rather that it was based on just PAO, which has poor solvency. Had they blended in some polar synthetic stocks such as esters or ANs they may not have had the issue they

Are you completely rebuilding the engine/trans/TC/axles? You can't start a million mile project off with junkyard parts with an unknown history. All this is gonna cost a fortune. I'd go with a 7.3 Superduty/Excursion in good shape and low miles.

I am betting that you have a clutch change in your near future. I have not used Mobil TDT, but I have used 15W/40 and 5W/40 Rotella and Delo for many years, in many wet clutch bikes, without any clutch issues. Either the clutch in your bike is worn

Interesting findings, any chance you recall which Valvoline 20W-50 it was? I've been looking for a PCMO 20W50 to run in the bike with a shared sump. I'm assuming, though, it was the Motorcycle 4T since you mention the JASO-MA.

I too would stick with 9688 size, not really small. Now the 6607/14612 which some quick lubes and indies use to replace the Hyun/Kia OE size, as shown HERE, that's small.
