No worries, I'm the same way. Not a huge fan of used parts.

I occasionally get an indicated miss on cyclinder 1. Other times also infrequently, I get a rough idle with no indications. Last time it happen it was after extended highway driving (like 10 hours) at about 2-2.5k rpms.

I have read here, and also seen reference in technical bulletins, that the valves are supposed to rotate periodically, but this only happens when rpms go above 4k, or 4.5k or something liek that. This is to reduce carbon buildup. It's my personal belief that this has to be under load as well, not just sitting and revving it.

At least that is how I find it always works for me. Run it through 1st and second up to 4500 and the next time I stop, the rough idle/miss is gone

I had the same issue with a misfire. I pulled the plugs, re-gapped them, and then put fresh dielectric grease on them. Problem solved....

What are you putting dielectric on? Anti-seize sure, but I don't see a use for the dielectric.

You put it inside the spark plug boot to aid in installation and removal of said boot. Also keeps moisture out so there will not be any corrosion.

Picked up a 136amp alternator form a Durango at the local U-pull. Word to the wise, if the bench test fails it at autozone. Take to a second shop
