  1. when you buy a car like this you are only buying the vin, you will be replacing everything, make sure that the dash and fender apron vin are the same. unless you have a shop with lift, rotisserie, and lots of welding materials this is not a car you want to start with.
  2. I ended up ordering the plugs from summit, (Scott Drake) Ill just need to put in the pins/.
  3. Thanks, it runs pretty well (well at least engine starts and keeps running) Im just not used to the older style anything anymore. I know it sounds silly, but once you do modular engines, you forget simplicity/
  4. well, i think i solved the problem. the pigtail is not made, but for some stupid reason, only the plastic part of it is. Luckily for me, I have the pin connectors to go in them from other plug connectors i use. http://www.drakeautomotivegroup.com/Store/Product/C8AZ-14489-K.aspx?wid=141
  5. I can not believe that doing a search for this brings no results! Is it possible these are not made?

  12. ok, i decided to cut off a bit at an angle. it is now clear.
