Routine Maintainence

Replaced spark plugs. They didn't look too bad for 5,000 miles on regular copper core with only a bosch blue coil. I'm thinking of putting a Mallory Hyfire on the car to further reduce maintainence - I hate changing spark plugs, especially with how bulky the Weber manifolds are. For comparison, I did all four plugs on the 356 in less time than it took to do probably just one. I even had to remove the carbs to get the rear plugs out.

Also checked the valves while I was at it, all looks good. About .004" on the intake and exhaust is the same all the way around.
