"you can time it without it running, so long as the battery is cranking it relatively well.   speed doesn't create the spark, grounding the voltage to the coil does, and that happens equally well at 10 rpm, better in fact.  "

But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob

Leaky Freeze Plug

Posted by Lee Martin on March 22, 2021 at 12:49pm 7 Comments

Just developed a significant leak coming from a freeze plug right over the starter.  Would this be considered a "cam plug" i.e. like Dorman 17616DS?  Our cars have multiple sizes of plugs on engine block and I want to get the right one.  Also, does anyone know how pricey this is for a shop to fix?  Thanks!
