Re: 7.3 MISFIRE

They used to be outrageous but now you can get them for around $25 even from the dealer. Cheap enough to get a spare to carry with you.

Re: 7.3 MISFIRE

Napa, Ford, ebay, International. They are all over ebay for less than 50 bucks. Napa is about 100, Ford is double that and i have heard that International is somewhere in between.
