okay, i've been the anti-champion plug guy. replaced distributor cap and rotor yesterday, no go, so swapped in new plugs. AZ had chumpy-ones in stock so i did them. gotta admit it fired up so quick it made me jump. being that it was pretty loaded up i thought it would crank a few times. so i'm giving the champions a shot, even though i've not had good luck with them in the past.
