Never noticed that they were made in the godd ole USA. But I would never put Autolites in anything except the lawnmower. Thet remind me of Fram filters. Thanks Fram for blowing up my engine.

Back in the real early 80's we used to cut the strap off the plugs it would make a h*** of a spark they just didn't last very long.
