Taking a closer look

OK, the trip home was fun, but there were times when the lack of power and hesitation were hard to miss.  I knew that a tune-up was in store, but I wasn’t prepared for what I found.

I pulled the plugs first.  They were Bosch Platinum, but completely worn out.  The only good news was that the color was decent.  No soot or oil.  Next I pulled the distributor cap and rotor.  Again, complete junk.  I’m amazed it ran.  I tried to clean up the cap and rotor as best as I could, but it just didn’t want to start.

I’ve already ordered parts for a complete tune-up, so I decided to save the battery and just wait until they arrive.
