    I got a set of NGK marine plugs off of ebay a few years ago.
    they didn't quite look right.. a little rough.
    The engine wouldn't run, drove me nuts until i put the old plugs back in.
    fired right up.

    I now only like to buy plugs from known good retailers.
    some of the newer counterfeits look really good, early on they were much easier to tell.

    I did this once a few years ago. Didn’t realize it until I was pouring the old oil into the jug for the next time I made a used fluid run. I was so pissed off that I went and bought six more qts and a new filter and changed the oil again. Probably could have gotten by, but I had just swapped out a cam due to a lifter locking up. Must have grabbed the wrong stuff off the shelf as I was in a little bit of a hurry when I picked it up.

    Well, my oil pressure was a hair lower than usual lately...not drastic, just a tick lower. I was like hmmmm..wonder whats going on here. I use 5 qts and a quart of MMO. It's a cocktail I feel works well for me, and sure enough its 5w20....grr.

    No, that’s for a NNBS only. I’m not sure which wire it is on a NBS. I did add led strips to the bottom of my doors on my NBS but I just tapped into the courtesy lighting that was already in the doors.
