Id still change the plug not the first time a plug was bad out of the box! If it was dropped at anytime could be cracked and not firing properly.

I swapped the coil and the wires from my '72, both of which worked fine while on the '72.

I had a bad plug out of the box once, and I use that experience as a testimony to coincidence.

Being I have off today I will look at this again from a different angle. Just don't know what that angle is yet.

Have a great day everybody, and thanks again for the suggestions.
