Good choice. ON the plugs, don't go spend $10 a plug. The NGK V series are a decent plug for a couple bucks each. Just change them regularly.

If you don't change them, then perhaps Platnium or Iridium will work, but with regular maintenance, it wont matter.

Napa makes good wires for the money. I had an older 350 that only ran good on Napa wires.

Thats a good choice on the distributor, should give you no problems.

Yeah, I asked them about adding some wires, but they said they were pretty much sold out of wires. I may get some at the parts store.

Your symptoms in your initial post would lead me to think you have a vacuum leak. Have you put a vacuum gauge on it to see what the idle vacuum is.
Nah, I haven't put a vacuum gauge on it, is a vacuum leak a big deal to fix, or is it usually just a hose or something?

Alright, thanks for the info. Do you happen to know if you can get napa wires that are spiral core?
