Does anyone know what a fair price is for a new OEM slant six spark plug tube? I found some but don't want to overpay.

How much are they asking?

Depending on where you find them, can get good used ones for next to nothing. Looks like the Aussie's sell a machined aluminum tube for about $100 a set.

Why not get used ones and install new seals? $100 for a new set is a lot.

I am sure the seals are cheap.

Wait a minute...

check ebay, they show up periodically, good sets for $15-30, sometimes a bit more. Look closely at pics, sometimes they're worn out at the base where the spark plug mates with them, the holes lose material and get too large for the plug to hold them in, most posts are good though.
