Found this Chainsaw Age September  1986 Autloite ad.

You're welcome.
The lettering was clear but when resized below 400 it got grainy.

Talked with Autolite about their OPE plug. Made in the USA.

Autolite spark plugs are assembled in North America from USA produced components.

2974   Copper Non-Resistor Spark Plug
2984   Copper Resistor Spark Plug
XST2974   Iridium Lawn & Garden Spark Plug   

Just wanted to update.  The rep LIED!

The new 2974 plug is no longer made in USA.    I figured with the wording of above it would be Mexico, Canada or US. Nope

Others not here yet. May just cancel.

What I got back after shooting email.

Kevin, only the copper core spark plugs are made in China. There is a reason for that, no North American car etc have used copper plugs as original equipment since the late 1990ís. We do sell plenty of copper plugs to Chinese and other APAC countries. All out platinum, double platinum and iridium spark plugs are made in North America. If you run a shop you are well aware that nearly all cars made in the last 20 years use premium spark plug metallurgy.
We do make ope copper plugs in China and we make iridium ope plugs in North America. In fact, we are the only manufacturer that has a complete line of high technology iridium spark plugs for small engines.

Sounds like Torch makes the copper ones per last email too.  Iridium ones sound like made in Mexico.
