Default 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.

Used to be a eng repair shop in town with their rates posted on a sign;

Labor rate bought here - $20/hr

Bought from Sears - take it back & let THEM try fixing it.

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

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.
