Re: Autolite 216 plugs

The Autolite 216 used to be a great plug and back in the 80's they even came with a guarantee,

But now made in China?

I guess I shoulda stocked up while I had the chance.

Re: 1985 ford AOD trans.

Yes Jack, avoid the AOD-E, which has metric embossed on the pan. Go with the older version and save yourself many headaches, wire nightmares and $$$.
