    NO....the first set was AC Delco R44TS....the second set( that looks terrible) is NKG UR4's(their hottest plug).

    the car has about 500 miles on it and getting ready for a 3rd set...will try AC 45 ts....I have 305 SS 601 heads on the 283 with flatops.

    I ran HEI at first until the speedometer messed up and it started running not so good...about 100 miles ago, put in a points system, changed the gap to 35, coil, resistor, etc...getting the same ignition readings as my 68 327-350hp vette. Accordding to AC plugs, only 2 were sorta fouling out...number 2 and 4....all of the NGK plugs are oil soaked around the threads and all the insulators are black with just a few with a very small tan tip.

    Prefer to keep the points vs HEI. My vette has the same plugs and points since 93 and it is a honky tonk...almost as fast as in the early 70's when you could buy gas....er....good gas.
