Sorry Herman, Champs were OE...

What was good 35 years ago isn't always good anymore today.
I've tried some Champions in some of my engines and all of them gave troubles down the line.
So speaking from experience I say, Champion sparkplugs plain suck. Ditch them before they ditch you...

After playing with the distributor I wanted to run the engine a bit this afternoon.  What a suprise.  On the 1st try I got a big bang and flame shot out of the carb.  Just a little startled.  Next try she fired right up.

I ran the car a little yesteday.  Not much time to play being mothers day and also being my son's birthday as well. 
 
It's running real good.  On the 1st bump it fired right up.  Sounds good too but like Polaraco said I wish you could hear.  Then I'd know for sure if I have it all adjusted right.  It has a bit of shake but I figure with an engine this big you should have a little vibration.  When it heats up it's coming off the fast idle like it's suppose to.

That shake may disipate in time as the gaskets swell and the oxidation flushes out.
 
How is it in drive?
