    Where did this come from?

    the first time I changed oil in a new 1969 coronet 440-4 speed ,rt , something started blocking the drain hole , reached in w/ a wire w/ a hook bent on it , and pulled a gob of steel wool out --sabotage from the factory , no doubt !

    NO, do NOT remove the spark plug washers on drool tube heads!!

    I quit reading about halfway thru this post , I ran w/o the plug washers in my hemi for 14 yrs with no problems , nary a one ! Even got the idea from Tom Hoover ! The alum tubes sealed very well , unless they are worn out or chewed up from the washers to start with .

    Good Quench Article

    Agree with all of it except the hemi part . The sides of the hemi piston is where the quench is at , not the bottom of the piston . And on a superstock hemi , we couldn`t go above 36 degrees very far w/o killing power . I had jacked around with it at the dragstrip , went up to 42 and slowed it...

    So what's the deal with spark plug washers?

    Never had a slant , but in the 426 hemi`s , the washers would eat up the spark plug seal tubes . On a slant I think they maybe called something else , but think they are still alum. . The alum. tubes will seal the plugs/combustion chamber .
