    After some reading and googling, it doesn't appear these are made anymore, if I'm wrong please correct me. In any case, I'm going to possibly need a set if anyone has some laying around.

          Drool tubes, slang for leaky o-ring seals on the pre-74ish slant head. Peanut heads came next. 5/8 hex taper spark plugs and no more tubes.

            I've got to get some pulled out of a parts car engine for another member here as well, just been nonstop rain lately and I have not had a chance to get them out. P.m if interested in a used set. I've got several 225 slant six engines for parts.

            Guys! Just went out to the garage, and I located “9”of the spark plug tubes for ‘74 and earlier SL6 engines. They are clean OEM tubes, or “drool tubes” as some of you call them. The engine I have in my Dodge is a ‘77 model engine w/ no tubes. $85.00 U.S. from the land of OZ for a set, WOW! I don’t have the seals for them. I believe the seal rings can still be had on line. PM me we’ll chat.
