    Joe,

    From what I understand, the newer cars don't have spark plugs. Instead they have a small lump of Plutonium to ignite the fuel, and this only needs to be replace after 57,000 years of regular use, but this drops to 613 years if you spend most of your time travelling at the speed of light (which, if myself and my underpants remember correctly, is not far from the truth!).

    Hope this helps.....

    I have a couple of options Dale, ill post some more pics shortly m8......

    Dale , Ray, et al


    Those pesky "O" rings on the cam cover gaskets are tricky buggers, The advise from KHP came in most handy in streching the rings before fitting...


    Cheers guys :) !!!


    Oh well more cleaning etc
