I just bought a 3X 26 unit and have been reading the operator's manuals. The spark plug for the machine is listed as 951-10292. A Google search found two sources that said that a Champion RN14YC (or 405) is equivalent. I can get the Champion plug locally when I need it, but I would probably have to get the 951-10292 on line since I have not found a local supplier.

Has anyone else found this equivalence? Is there a way to confirm this with the snowblower manufacturer?

I haven't had a chance to try out the snowblower yet, but I expect good performance. I live in Beavercreek, Ohio and we usually don't get really heavy snow (2 feet would be considered heavy here), but on one occasion two years ago my other blower stalled. I doubt that will happen with the Cub. I read in this forum that one user had trouble with OEM shear pins frequently snapping and that switching to after-market pins solved the problem. Anyone else have this problem?

Congrats on the Cub ! You won't be disappointed. Had mine out for the first time today and it impressed me on every feature. Not really a lot of snow but it was a great "maiden voyage". Looking forward to being able to try it in deeper snow .
Enjoy ! You bought an awesome machine !!

Thanks for the suggested alternative spark plug. Autozone here has this plug listed, but apparently they don't stock it at the store. They would have to order it. When I Googled the plug number, Champion RN14YC came up as an alternative.

Thanks for the reply and the spark plug suggestion. I don't understand your comment about "Honda clone". Is the engine a "Honda clone"? How did you determine that this plug is a replacement for the 951-10292? Please don't take offense at my questions; I am curious about how you found this substitute.

yes all powermore engines used on mtd products are honda clones. yours is a gx200 clone with a slight over bore and some shroud changes to get around patent laws. a honda gx200 uses an ngk bpr6es or bpr5es spark plug, therefore a clone of a honda gx200 would use an ngk bpr5es or bpr6es spark plug

43128,

Thanks again for the plug suggestion and for providing a link to the Home Depot page for the plug. I have saved the page in my Cub Cadet file. My local Home Depot has 8 in stock. So I now have a local supplier for this item. I hate paying shipping and handling for items where those fees are almost equal to the price of the item itself.

Congrats and no broken pins in mine yet...not sure why another had problems? The plow always comes thru before I have a chance to clear driveway, so that means heavy duty snow, slush, ice at end of driveway and absolutely no issues!
