Get home from work today and find some random stuff by my front door. Weird. I have found notes, beer, travelers, tools, beer, cats, eclipse glasses, beer, racoons, Skill's rubber and soiled speedo. but never random parts. Someone stop by for a tune up Think
Very random.

keep looking. I left a used rubber on the light by the garage and had a shart, so I discarded my soiled speedo in the bush by the porch

What you haven't figured out yet is where they got the replacement parts from.

Is that plug on the left leaking between the porcelain and steel on the outside?
Or is that overspray from the shart?

been seeing that a lot lately. pretty sure it's from running too hot. I especially see it on boosted cars, and NGK's seem to be worse than others.

it wasn't shart juice. it was one of those crop duster farts. sadly it had a big report at the end, hence the skivvies in the bushes

run them hot enough the glue melts. A couple well known racing teams used to set the mixture on their engines before wide band gauges by watching for the spot where the glue just began to ooze. Mac Tilton, who built Paul Newman's winning cars told me that. My understanding is that he didn't have the skivvy problems you all seem to have when your plugs are hot.

Well..... even coverage and distribution counts for bonus points even if it was semi accidental, nice work!
