Hmmm....  along those lines I suppose you could also just solder an led 
between the center electrode and the side electrode and hook up a DC 
power supply - you'd need what, ~50V for a sparkplug with a 5K ohm 
resistance...  Trouble is I don' t know if the resistor in the sparkplug 
could dissipate that ~1/2 Watt of power...


Maybe giving up is a good idea
