7.3 spark plug location? In valve covers like a hemi?

Figured I would share this sense it's pretty funny..

So the other day A kid got a hold of me looking at a 7.3 powerstroke that was running kind of funny.
he brought it over to my house and as we are looking at it he says, could it be the spark plugs?
I laughed and said, yeah I herd that joke also lol
He said huh? No, I think there under the valve covers like a hemi..

I looked at him with a stupid face and asked if he was serious?

He says yeah, hemi's have the spark plugs in the valve covers! Crazy huh!?

I said no, your seriously asking me if a diesel has spark plugs..?

Well how the heck else can it run?

I said, it gets ignition from the piston compressing the fuel in the combustion chamber dude.....

He said, what? That makes no sense, your full of it. How dose it get spark from the motor to be able to run.?

I explain how it all works and fast forward to a few days later..

He calls me just cursing up a storm!

Says I was full of **** and I owe him a new motor in his car???

I ask how on earth I owe him a new motor and he said this...

YOU TOLD ME MY MOTOR WILL RUN USING THE COMPRESSION FROM THE PISTON! SO I TOOK OUT THE SPARK PLUGS AND PLUGED THE HOLES AND NOW MY MOTOR WONT RUN, OR TURN OVER AND I HAVE GAS LEAKING OUT THE SIDE OF MY MOTOR!!

Sounds like my father in law when he asked how much a tune up costs for my 05 Ex. Told him it's real hard to find plug wires and cap and rotor for a diesel. He then asked if spark plugs were easy to find. Gotta love it.

I met one of these types in High School. We had an automotive class taught at a remote location by a licensed mechanic.

We gave this kid a ration. We told him to flush the radiator in a VW bug. He spent nearly the whole class looking for it. (The instructor knew something was up and asked us. We told him. He told us he wasn't going to say a thing.) We had projects to do, with the 'mechanics book' (this was in 1973) that told us what to do and how long it should take us to do it. He continually skipped steps and still took longer to do the job than it was supposed to. We told him he should probably get a good job so he could pay someone to work on his car. He got mad at us.

some people shouldnt own a diesel. My roomie in college (city kid) was amazed by the fact it didnt have spark plugs, even more suprisingly was he listened while I explaned how it worked and comprehended it.
