The spark plug is for a Metz!

I have a "project pile" of Metz parts myself. Those are fairly hard to find.

The points? I do not know.

Maytag gas engines used a long reach take-apart spark plug but not nearly as long as that one. It could be a stationary or other than automotive application.

When did I do that?

Those deep plugs are for a Model B thru G Buick 2 cylinder from 1904-10, and 2 cyl. chain drive trucks up to 1914. I have owned and driven Metz cars & trucks years ago, and the engine top end & cyl head is almost identical to a T, only one center bolt is slightly different. Gaskets & heads can interchange with a little effort, they used to put Metz heads on T's because of the better compression. I never used plugs like this on a Metz, they take a standard T plug, unless they are talking about the early 2 cylinder models, I never worked on one of those.
