Put in the Belden Max'* and TR55s. Excellent... I can already see a change. The state of the outgoing plugs and wires was embarassing. I don't know how the car could run. One wire was so rigid, I could almost stand it up against the wall. One plug snapped when I was working the wire cap on it. I wasn't pulling on it, just working the cap loose..
Ordered an O2 sensor, PCV valve, and fuel filter from a place called autopartsgiant.com. All AC Delco for them. If I should be using something else for them, let me know.They had the best aggregate price, 10% off and free shipping. If their customer service is as whacky as their web order process, I'll never see that order. Anybody ever use these guys?
I put the TR55s in with their stock gap, .060. But I have been reading they are better at .055?
I haven't received my Chilton yet...
Is that the O2 sensor sticking straightup from the exhaust behind the engine? If it is, is there any reason I can't just wrench it out? I know there is a tool for it.
Is the fuel filter in the line on the passenger side towards the back? Is there any trick to getting that changed without a gas bath?
I'm looking for a 180* Stant T-stat. Are the ones at NAPA, Stant? They look like it but don't say.
Any comments or info would be appreciated. Thanks.
OT- According to the expert at the desk at Advance Auto... TR55s aren't made anymore. NGKs should NEVER! be used in American cars, only in foreign and motorcycles. The current NGK replacement for the TR55s are about $5 ea.
And I don't think I will be invited back to that store.
i have to work on my people skills.
