Re: What spark plugs are you currently using?

The current 3X’s I’ve seen have dual grounds (I think that is what they are called). Is that an improvement/. Are they good for our Model A’s?

Re: 600w Oil or STP for Steering Box ...

I have used the 600W from Brattons. I live in NJ and often receive my orders the following day if I order in the morning. You are not far from them either so the wait should be minimal.
