F'ked Up Square Head Pipe Plug Removal

Sometimes removal of a square head pipe plug installed into cast iron in 1972 can be difficult with your starter and motor mounts still in place. And when it strips out ,give this a try. Turn a 3/8" drive 9/16" socket around backwards and tap the square end onto the plug with a hammer, place a sacrificial 3/8" bolt in the soacket and turn with a large pipe wrench!

Viagra for Sparkplugs?

I thought for sure that the 440 in the Shrunken Fury was done for. It dropped two cylinders while driving the other day. Somehow the porcelain seperated on 2 of the hecho en Mexico Champion sparkplugs and they started to leak compression!
Two new sparkplugs later and the motor sounds better than ever!
