      I have the same engine in my 23LSV.  no need to buy overpriced plugs and pay shipping from a marine parts dealer.  I have used NGKs from NAPA for years, changed every other season.

      There is no difference between an auto spark plug and a "marine" spark plug.  they cant make them waterproof.

      I have a 2007 23lsv with a 350 Monsoon. I'm having a hard time finding the correct replacements and the gap in the manual. Multiple threads I found also mention there is competing incorrect info.

      I believe I require AC-Delco 41-993's . What gap should they be, and do they come with that gap or am I going to have to change them?

      The plugs I pulled do say 41-993 on them, but it also says 19256067 on them which I have found online, but bakes marines 41-993 say a different number on them than the 19256067.

      (i did find a thread that said the correct plug is 41-993 gaped at .060, even though the manual says .045. But the thread was about a 2012, which may be different as it's 5 years newer!)

      I'll give it one more shot, just don't want it shearing off ... I'd be pretty screwed if that happens


      My first boat the filter was on so tight from the previous owner - I went through multiple wrenches, tools, cutting, screwdrover, etc. and couldn’t get it off.  Literally spent hours trying.  I finally towed up to Jiffy Lube - they worked on it for about 15 minutes and finally got it off.  They wouldn’t accept payment but I bought the shop pizza for lunch.

      I bought this one...https://www.lowes.com/pd/Reese-Towpower-5-16-in-Chain-Clip-Quick-L-inks/1001277446

      Quickly posted other link because I couldn’t find what I bought, thus my “similar to this” reference in my post. After more searching, I found what I bought. With 5000lb load limit. 

      Ah - much better.  :)

      Just keep twisting on it until it crushes so much that it won't grip.  Drilling a hole is a mixed bag, most of the time you just rip the filter apart with the screwdriver. Last ditch move is a cold chisel on the seam to try to spin it that way. On my last ditch effort yesterday took a crowbar to outside edge of ring near the threads and hit with a hammer... Got her off finally... Now I can sleep easy lol
