I was really curious about the carbon/copper wire thing, as theoretically, I could see issues, but had no experience to back it up to justify the cost of replacing already new plug wires.
Ill get that going and see where it leads - in the mean time, will check compression. Its always been a decent starter, and ran well... just something happened between the last, and second to last time Dad ran it.
Yeah, I know its a 15 minute job, as I just did it yesterday before I started inspecting the wires. The ones that were in there, supposedly only had 10 hours on them, but had obviously welded together or something cause there was a huge divot out of the stationary point face and a sharp build up on the moving point face. So I replaced them, thinking I had the fix... But no such luck. But didnt clean the "invisible corrosion" you mentioned... had never heard of that, so will do that as well just to eliminate possibilities. Guessing its a light oil coating or something that causes a bit of oxidization?
But the copper wire vs Carbon appears to be a big thing...which I wondered if it might be - so will get on that first, and then see where I end up.
Thanks a bunch, and any other input, ideas, or suggestions are welcome.
