I completely forgot about Lakeland until yesterday.
I thought I had one also, but it was not for a Corvette, at least not a C2 Corvette. Had the right shape, but the angles were slightly different, just enough to where it would not work and could not be bent. Was getting really discouraged until BAM, right out of the blue, one showed up. I tried it on my window frame and it works.
I bought a new set of Autolite plugs and Mason installed them over at the body shop. I asked him if it started any better and he said the engine did not even turn a full revolution and it instantly started right up and ran perfectly. I looked at the plugs that were removed and they were extremely fuel fouled and smelled like hell 3 days after being removed.rbryce1 wrote: ↑Feb 14th, 2020 11:39 pmThe engine has me a bit concerned though. It really ran like crap when I was there today. I have been noticing it going down hill over the last month or so. Hard to start, missing and popping on the passenger side exhaust. To me, it all sounds like fouled spark plugs. I looked in the maintenance records and they are not the original plugs from the engine build, but I did install them on June of 2017 and although they don't have that many miles, they have years of sitting and very short runs. Also, when I removed the Edelbrock recommended Champion RC12YC plugs I installed Autolite 3924 plugs, as I have never been a fan of Champion. The problem really sounds like ignition to me.
