    Don't Order Spark Plugs From Sears

    Sears had CM6 spark plugs for sale on line. I ordered what I thought was one six pack for $38.10 including shipping. Apparently it went through some outside vendor and what I got was a pack of one plug. I have been e-mailing them and the vendor back and forth. The vendor offered a rebat of $15. That way I am only paying $23.10 for one plug $7.00 plug. Don't do business with them. Maybe it was confusion on my part, if so their website was far from clear. Just giving everyone here a heads up.

    BaracudaHockey,

    Thanks for the above link. I ordered 10 plugs for $4.05 each. No O'Reillys Auto Supply around here and the ones I checked with don't carry and would have to order and cost more. These should keep me in plugs for 2 or 3 years. I have six engines that use the CM6. Thanks again.

    No problem.

    As an aside, I used to drive through Easton on the way to the Pocono's several times a year when I lived in Philly

    RE: Don't Order Spark Plugs From Sears

    Sears parts are generally quite expensive,  The good thing is you can get parts for some of their older stuff that has been out of production for a while.

    I had to buy a drive set for my old Craftsman disc/belt sander combo which consisted of 2 pulleys and a Gilmore belt, it cost me about $55, but I got my U.S.A made sander usable again.  I probably could have bought a new Chinese sander for that...OH well.
