The 2018 Tri State Gas Engine and Tractor Show, Portland, IN by David Walker 8-27-2018Spark Plug Electrodes
The 2018 show in Portland IN, as always, had its unique happenings. I have been going for over 30 years
and have never been disappointed, though some years have been better than others. This year’s beginning was no different. I normally get up at four in the morning to head out to Portland for about 7 hours of driving and pulling my camper in order to arrive around lunch time. We had everything packed the night before. I
had checked everything on the camper and unplugged it until the next morning, at which time the lights on
the camper did not work when I plugged it in. More of Article
