    but now looking back, I wonder exactly what I was hitting on.

    Well, someone else did. I only got about 2 weeks out of them. They were in the truck when I got it, and who knows how long they were in it before. It hadn't been licensed for almost a year.

    I plowed with it, towed with it and hauled with it for 2 weeks then it finally started acting up. I knew it needed a tune up, but I was just too lazy to do it yet. Now it's got a nice set of used plugs I scrounged from here and there in my garage.

    Whats this $$ you speak of? I havent seen that for a while... at least none that was extra and not spoken for. I have a good used cap somewhere in the garage and a good rotor I kept off a Buick motor before I got rid of it.

    The oil is actually clean and not even blackened at all. Of course, I keep adding oil to it since it seems to be leaking somewhere... probably around the sending unit. It doesn't smoke or burn any, but every 80-100 miles it goes down a quart.
