They will issue you one. I have one. I'm pretty sure the records are a mess though because I'm pretty sure mine is completely inaccurate. I even emailed them directly and had them double check. I don' ...

I used the POR 15 exhaust coating that is silver/gray and after probably 8-10 years it still is a silver/gray color.

Like Glenn points out, #1 is sometimes in a different place on different distributors. When I got my Thing it had a 009 on it and #1 was where his #4 is. When I replaced it with the correct Dual Vacuu ...
