I know what SVOboy is

I know what SVOboy is talking about. My valve cover gasket blew and when I went to change the plugs the #2 spark plug hole was flooded so much that when I took out the boot oil sprayed everywhere.

I bought some new gaskets from a dealer for $28, my car needed 2 of them. You could pick it up for $25 at a honda dealer.

OK, I just finished the

OK, I just finished the indexing. I got two of them dead nuts toward the exhaust ports, one was about 10 degrees too far left and the fourth was 20 degrees too far left.

SVO, the package you sent me said (4) of the .043, (4) of the .054 and (4) of the .064. Well what I got was (4) of the fat ones and (6) of the skinny ones. I ended up using two of the fat ones. No combination of fat, skinny or fat+skinny could properly index the last two.

Who's next on the list?

BTW, here is what my new plugs look like after 200 miles. The left four are the new ones and the right two are the old ones. Whadda ya think? Perhaps a bit lean?

I used two of the original

I used two of the original 12, and I couldn't figure out the difference between the two small sizes either,

Anyway, I can't see for *** in your picture.

After 200 miles, your plugs sure look blurry.

SVO Boy, what's up with your throttle cable? Did you rig that? It almost looks like your clutch cable...but cut to fit your throttle. Hey, whatever works. Also, your oxygen sensor wiring harness looks very thick. Is that stock, or did you change something there too?
