Re: Spark plugs

There's that Tom Brown in gutter again.

1. I never said the Autolites were special.... not for $1.99 (Tom 
accuses me of being a moron by crediting me with something I didn't 
say). Indeed my belief, if incoherently written before, is that it 
prolly makes little difference what plug you use provided it has one 
electrode, right heat range, and projected tip, with carved electrodes 
as found in precious metal plugs a further benefit.

2. I think we can all do without you posting stupid patronizing crap 
like "In the end we (and that includes you, Ben) don't really know why 
things work." Not too helpful, Tom, eh?
