Rough Idle, Low Speed Stutter, Hesitation around 3K RPM

Hey All,

This is not a request for help, at least not yet.

I have a misfiring at low rpm's, like running on 3 cylinders. It didn't ever stall, despite the rough idle, and it seems to clear up beyond 5 or 6Krpm.

Based on a few web searches, including on this forum (People gotta learn to report back when they find the fix!) I decided to check my plugs.

I don't know how it ran at all?

I just clocked 60,000 miles, and I do believe this is my first plug replacement!

Of course it is. I only posted to help the next guy, hopefully it shows up in search results.

I bought a set which I had planned to install during the last valve adjustment, but when the time came I couldn't find them.
Nobody's fault but mine....(Tryin' to save my soul to light!)
