Corvette Engiens with AC 46-5 Plugs

170 Corvettes wewre built during period 3-29 to 4-9-57 with AC 46-5 Plugs installed.

Serial # E57S-103098 to 103268.

These plugs should be changed to AC-46 due to spark plug boots not fitting the AC-46-5 plugs properly.

In cases where units operating in heavy traffic continue to oil foul spark plugs oil shedders should be installed.
