The spark plug thread is all good!

Checking that list, why would you say it's a 79?
Because the 1e6 number is also next to the 76 model?

1E6-300101-310000 2H2XT 500 E 78... If your vin is 1e6 302000 thst falls in between those #s doesn't it? So 1978.. That's just how I'm reading it maybe?

Your tank is 1980 colour scheme. You might have a 1980 chassis with a 1978 motor.
