    We used to index plugs in our race engines but not for clearance! For performance.

    It goes like hell, when it has functioning spark plugs in it!

    I was going to suggest that you look for dimensionally compatible flat copper washers from the industrial suppliers or ebay and make a quick tool to make them tapered like a Zeus dimpler.

    I worry about what shrouding the plugs would do.

    46 is the extended tip. 127 is the short version.
