Lodge HLN

Can someone tell me if the long reach (3/4 inch) 14mm Lodge HLN has the same heat range as the 18mm Lodge H1? If not, what is the equivalent long reach 14mm Lodge plug?

Re: Yesterday I went for a ride and this happened ..

Here's my last "failure". Had been hearing the occasional "crack" coming from the rear of the bike...bad enough to make me stop and examine the bike but never found anything. I eventually noticed it when I was doing some work on the rear chain guard. I think the odd "crack&q...
