First rule (as I am sure your Dad will tell you), dont trust anything, even brand new parts...

I've had brand new Bosch and NGK spark plugs straight out of the box not working before. And of course you wouldn't call them cheap pattern parts.

On the subject of spark plugs, what condition and colour are yours? Are they wet with fuel by any chance?
