plugs are dry and i think the missfire was from the coolant pipe splitting? not even sure if it was a missfire. i didn't put last plugs in but who ever did was very strong lol!!
not sure wot jets, should be standard. it was running 15psi, but i put it down to 12psi.

General Chat / sooo hard.......why?!!
« on: 20:28, Fri 03 April 2009 »
treated the car today to new ht leads, fuel filter, dizzy cap and arm and spark plugs. i was gonna do the oil and filter but i'll do that another day with mobil super s 10/40.
anyway, everything was very easy until i got to getting the old spark plugs out!!!! they didnt want to budge....i even snapped the tool. in the end i got a long wrench which worked but there was only one that was easy to unscrew. the others felt really tight and it was tight putting the new ones in. the old plugs were very black and sooty, is that about right???
 took it out for a spin and it was going well, then when i put my foot down i felt a slight missfire. got home and there was coolant over the front bumper???!!!! had a look and the altanator had put a slit in the pipe that runs from the top of the expansion tank to the black circle thing lol.
 another thing to do. still one of the most fun cars ive had tho.
