    Hey everyone- just got my first Cruiser! :D

    I have a question on Edelbrock 350 plugs- are they all the same? What kind should I get? I'm not sure on the block number yet but I'll get that asap.

    Also, I'm gonna tune the whole thing up this weekend but I was worried about the large plume of light colored smoke that poured out when I started it up after it sat for a day. I had to pump the gas to get it to idle. Probably needs an oil change, some good gas and a check up. Any thoughts?

    RV17YC is the champion number....pretty standard plug. IMO, put in a standard plug, drive for a month or so, then "read" the plug and your "seat of the pants" performance feel to decide if you need hotter or cooler.

    Bosch Platinums are the only plug I'd run in a GM motor...

    light smoke often = condensation in the block from the wide freeze/heat ranges of spring...maybe...lol

    Ok thanks- btw the smoke goes away but it's super annoying- just wondered if there was a cylinder problem or leak somewhere- maybe not.
