    Tip For Buying New Spark Plugs - Check 'em!

    Stopped at a local parts supplier today to grab a new set of plugs to get fresh reads on the new carb. Counter guy starts pulling the first 4pk box apart and opens the first plug box to find a used plug! Same with the other 3 in that 4pk, and the 4 in the second 4pk.
    He says it happens all the time. Wonder if that's why most of the crew that's been there the last few years seem to have all disappeared in the last couple weeks.

    Yikes! Luckily I had a set in the garage for the shake down run, but couldn't buy a set in SLC. Had to be ordered? Oh, and the dizzy that finally fit had to come from a '73 Ford town and country station wagon. O'Reilly tried to dumb blond my wife but got an ear full from my wife when she taught them some computer look up 460 parts LOL. Its a boat, lots of trucks and Galaxies had 460 motors...I am actually really proud! Came home and the right parts were there! Good job Marcee!
