44350 Miles - New Autolite XP3923 Iridium Spark Plugs

Have been seeing what looked like a leak on the left side of the rear cylinder, and just recently on the right side of the front cylinder. Based one advice from Spike, I pulled the spark plug covers and found those two spark plugs were not tight and were seeping. I hadn't torqued them when I put them in and was playing it a little too safe when tightening them up. Today I put all 4 new Autolite XP3923 Iridium spark plugs in with anti-seize on the threads and torqued them to 13 ft⋅lbf. It's definitely running better and after a 100 mile ride, shows no sign of seepage.

45282 miles @ 8/31/2019

Couldn't wait. Did oil change today at about 8k miles. I had intended to go 10k. Old oil after 2 years and 8000 miles still looked good, could have easily made 10k but it's done now. Used Mobil 1 Racing 4T 10/40 with a supertech 6607 filter. All set for the next 8000 miles. Wanted to change my hydraulic oil today but was just too hot outside. Good winter project maybe.
