Are they the Champion Copper Plus RJ18YC?
Maybe 'pinch' the plug wire terminals slightly so that it 'clicks' & holds onto the plug end?

The catalog lists AR80 which is an Autolite/Motorcraft. It crosses to a Champion J-11Y. I trust the updated Champion listing more.
Back then, you could pick between a large selection of hot or cold plugs. Probably because of wider fuel quality differences and/or fouling issues.

That is a very good question!
I would lean toward the Champion shown in post #7.

That felt in the top of the shaft also get a couple of drops of clean oil. You may have oil cups on the distributor body and front/rear generator bearings.
You may also have a grease fitting on the water pump.


When looking for a cap & rotor, the ones with brass terminals oxidize much less than the ones with aluminum terminals.
