The car blew a spark plug. One of the Autolite 303’s blew out. My grandson Preston and I were on our way back from the track to Seneca Lodge and when we turned the corner into the lodge heard a POW and then some really different noises.
We pulled into a spot right in the front and opened the hood only to see that plug number 6 just blew out of it’s hole. Went to Napa Auto Parts, got a helicoil repair kit. Loaded the bit up with grease to catch the metal chips and installed it in the Seneca Lodge Parking lot. Worked just fine and we were off for a good time the rest of the weekend.
Update – when I had the engine rebuilt we could see there was no damage from doing the helicoil in the parking lot, I guess the loading it up with grease worked.
