    Pm [email protected] He is in the Raleigh area and had asked me about changing spark plugs. I have no experience, but maybe the 2 of you can get together and figure it out. I would be glad to join you guys as an observer. I would not be much help though.

    Geeze! All the 109's you have had and never changed a plug? I bet you know how to change one in a 4.6.

    Nope. The last thing I changed plugs in was my 94 cobra, and that was because of a bad tune with nitrous. When it needs to have the plugs changed, it is time for another one. 27k on the first 9, 28k on the second one, and only about 7-8k on the 3rd one. I should probably change them in the Lightning since that is the only thing that I really plan on keeping for the long hall. Maybe I will get with you or Oink for the job

    He doesn't keep them long enough to change the plugs! Hopefully, he keeps his new one for a while. It will be good to see him back on a 9 this year.

    I will definitely be keeping it at least until June for the MAM. Unless a smoking deal pops up on a 2nd. gen Vmax.
    Either way, you guys can't get rid of me that easily. I will be there to chase you guys around even if I have to take the roush.

    Tricky. You know that they break easily if they are corroded.

    Have you started on replacing the plugs? I did not have to loosen the right air filter but I did remove my right radiator cover.

    Removing the radiator cover on the right side made it easy to get to #4 plug. While you have her disassembled, tighten up all clamps and hoses that you see. I had mine completely apart trying to find a short that’s blowing my 15A turn signal fuse.
