I just pulled 4 of the spark plugs out of the driver side head of my Charger's 383. They look like they are as old as the car!! I read them as saying this engine is running way too rich and is sick! Looks like there is oil on the threads too. They look terrible.. One of them smelled like gas. Only thing maybe good about them is the electrode and ground straps have no wear. Autolite 85 stamped "made in USA" (maybe 49 years ago). The carb is a Holley 750cfm 4160 dual feed, vacuum secondary, electric choke. Have had this car for 2 months. Carb smells like gas, kinds stinks up the garage if the car has been shut up in there all day. I've been starting it up and running it till warmed up once a week since I've had it. Has only been driven one time, around the block twice with PS pump disconnected, which was about 2 weeks ago. In mid December, I ended up flooding the engine badly, when I couldn't get the car started (pumping gas and cranking 25 or 30 times). Which was due to an electrical issue, that I fixed that same day. When it did start that day, it ran incredibly rough. Was misfiring due to the flooding. So rough I thought it was going to shake the car apart. Then eventually it smoothed out. The charging system doesn't currently work in this car and hasn't for a long time. Engine marks its territory on the ground, it leaks oil.. I think the valve covers may be leaking, maybe the rear main crankshaft seal, maybe other places too. But the amount of oil leakage is minor compared to the massive steering box leakage. Miraculously the engine does not smoke! I never see any smoke coming out of the tail pipes.. From the look of the plugs, you'd think it should be emitting a huge cloud of blue smoke out of the machine gun tips. The plugs looks like they came out of a junk yard car. These are the most ancient looking plugs I've ever pulled out of an engine. I should have pulled a couple out and looked at them before I bought the car.. Note to self on that.. What do you guys think of these sorry looking plugs pulled from this sick Super Bee?
