My mom'* Sable had a plug that looked exactly like that, except that the grounding metal piece was intact.

BTW.. Mike..if you are in the area..stop in. Heck..bring clothes and stay over.

Yeah..that plug is er uh.. not healthy. We are hoping the motor took it well and Mike may only need to place an order with Intense for some flow...

No it was actually a cheap temp replacement for I got for 24 bucks at autozone. I even checked the spark which was pretty weak compared to my MSD coils.

I stopped by a junk yard to pick some up cheap but they wanted 90 bucks for a set of used stock coils that looked like they were setting in water for weeks. I kind of chuckled and walked out.

We'll see the real damage when we tear it down tomorrow.

If that had been a stock piston there would be no piston just bunch of crumbs in the oil pan with the rod knocking holes in the block all over. That Diamond took it like a champ.
