I prefer the "stock" look myself. However you've done a great job on yours! I pretty much appreciate them all and if everyone made them look the same, it would be pretty boring.

Spark Plugs

Dave,

Thanks for the reply. They are the original "FI" heads, (13/16ths plugs). I was just wondering if there was any advantage to using the copper gaskets with the brass terminals vs the steel...

In the Portland area you might also check out Hubcap Annie. I've delt with them once, a few years back, and they were quite helpful. I'm not sure if they are the same now. They have a...

Thanks so much for the reply! What is supposed to be the date code really looks like an "I" not a 1 and the "0" looks like an "O". So that's what is kind of confusing. I can send a picture but I...

Big Dave,
