What type of spark plugs were the T35 cars equipped with at the factory? And if available, can anyone post a picture of one for reference of a model build?

Would these have been brass body or ceramic?

I see in the old advertisments that by 1928, Nerka is associated with racing victories. Champion in earlier ads, so Herman is probably correct...Thanks.

surely as insulation is necessary to deliver the spark to the fuel, ceramic would be necessary and probably a metal body to screw into the block...with brass terminal or spring wire of the era.?

I dont know what was fitted to T35 but they would have tried all available [just as we all do ] I do know what was fitted to the T251 because I was lucky enough to be given a full box of new boxed originals.These are Marchal "course"
