    So like anyone else, I like to carry a few spare parts for emergency reasons. When my distributor issues arose, I ordered one but my mechanic had a used one when i was there.
    But the brand new in the box(remanufactured motorcraft distributor) from napa came in and I'm gonna keep it. Doesn't have the TFI module but I'm gonna hunt down a deal for a mototcraft one and make it complete. The box isn't that big so it's gonna stay.

    I wanna know what kinda spare parts you guys carry around??

    In my DD I got, from what I can think of as spare parts....

    1.distributor - new
    2. belt - new
    3. few spark plugs, couple wires, rotor - all used
    4. starter solenoid- used
    5. vaccum line- new
    5. oil pressure sending unit - new
    6. fuses, various awg electrical wire & tape
    7. various bulbs
    8. (what you got???)

    I only keep a cap, rotor, 2 plugs, 3 different length wires, few vac lines and duct tape.

    along with a small tool bag with metric and standard wrenches/ sockets and some wire cutters screw drivers and such nothing special.

    Dude, it's been almost 40-years since Hoffa disappeared. At this point, you'd need a dust buster and a zip lock back to carry him around in. The shovel is unnecessary. :D

    I walked half a mile in a damn blizzard to buy that stuff in Toronto and carried around 2 huge cans of it for 3 days because my wife had to have it. It's bland and I refuse to drink it.

    I carry some tools, an air compressor, a tire plug kit, a flashlight, and AAA card. Apply Murphy's law and you are ok. Whatever part you happen to have in the trunk is bound to be a part that won't fail on the car. Whatever tool you have in the trunk is bound to be the wrong size to fix the problem. Spend $160/yr on AAA and you will never break down to the point where you need a tow.

    See, I've never been a fan Tim Horton's coffee. IMO, I find it taste better and old, even when fresh. I'll drink their tea, but can't stomach the coffee unless it's loaded with cream and sugar.

    I'm more of a "diner" coffee kind of guy. Believe it or not, McDonalds coffee is really popular around here with the seniors. Follow the Senior Citizens man....they always know where the good stuff is. :D
