    Default Success!

    Well, that ain't no freaking 20 minute job - I don't care if you have Jebus H. Christ Hisself helping you out!

    With a lot of swearing, sweating in 105 sunshine, and a back ready to break from bending over the hood, all 6 plugs found their new homes. Only one of them gave me any heebie-jeebies going in - different feel than the others. Felt stuck on the way out, too, so I think the threads in this well are F-ed. Whaddyagonnado...

    Anyhoo, the idle is better and it starts easier. But what a freaking pain in the ass...

    Next up: leather restoration and possibly a p-chip.

    I'm gonna post detailed instructions on this "simple" task in the interests of preventing future profanity from prospective plug changers...

    Thank god I had some beer in the fridge after that travesty!
