    It would make sense, just couldn't confirm since the plugs were so wet.
    I messed around trying to get the timing set a while ago with a crappy Matco scan tool. It was originally showing at about 23 degrees and i got it to 11 by moving the distributor a tooth. I couldn't seem to get any more out of it. Ill get into it more once nice weather shows up for good.

    Here's the pic of the plug threads. Luckily they just broke due to rust and not because they were overtightened or cross threaded. 0304181335.jpg

    Now that you mention it the part numbers on them did seem a bit outdated, I want to say they were AC Delco 14? Funny thing is I had done the drivers side first, all 4 came out like butter. First two on the pass side snapped. The other two look even worse, i skipped over one because i couldn't get the 5/8 socket on because of the rust. They look like the engine sat outside and had water resting on the plug area on the one side.

    Niiiicccce... I bet those were a bitch to get out with the rust. I think your truck with thank you by getting new plugs for it, will probably run a tiny bit better than when you bought it, lol.

    Completely forgot I had this post! Still have the truck, still running exactly the same, plowed great this past season as usual. I did paint it last summer a deeper shade of blue. Also had a junky fiberglass cowl hood and popped that on in favor of the trashed stock hood. Don't have that painted to match yet though.

    The 2" cowl looks perfect on it, the 4" just looked out of place.
