40K miles on 84 4000Q!!!

A friend of mine got a type 44 20V turbo that was traded in to the dealer at
100k. It got minimal trade in and he got it cheap.  It didn't run right and
I was quickly able to diagnose it to having not ever had a tune up.  The
plugs had so much gap that as soon as it got boost, it would misfire.
