My '88 Chevy 3/4 ton 4-speed p/u with 190,000 miles!!! Now it needs a set of plug wires (they're Original)!!! And a set of front brake pads (they're original too)!!!<p>That truck should go 250,000 miles easily.<p><p>(just kidding)

I've changed the cap & rotor thing I would not have to change the wires.<br>The wires are not that bad just sometimes it'll skip and pop.

you guys with the 88s must have the 350 for an engine. my 88 with the 305 didnt last past 100,000 miles had to replace it with a goodwrench 350, it now has 130,00 miles(just broke in), will probably run for another 250,000 miles. <p>----------<br>grasskutter@cs.com<br>

I have a 88 K5 with 130+ miles, 350 TBI. Bought it less than 2 months ago. A freind ask &quot;Why did you buy a truck with so many miles on it?&quot; My reply was. They are only starting to get broke in at 100 thou. The Chevy 350 TBI is the best &quot;Diehard&quot; engine I have ever had the pleasure of working on since I have been wrenching for the past 20 odd years. Mom didn't give me a rattle. I wanted dads Snap On wrench. :-) <p>----------<br>Cobra<br>Built Chevy Tough!<br>

Hell, My 89 350 has 191,000 miles and I expect at least that much again. But I must admit, I've put on new plug wires.<p>----------<br>A Cut Above<br>
