cap & wires. |
Find ign faults before they leave you stranded.
Check coil ends for rust, sure sign of bad wires.
Go from this
Kinda gross but a little spit helps things slide together easy.
Pull back the rubber and they just unscrew.
You can see the screw in the stock plug cap, they literally just screw
on the wire.
This page has info about the plug caps, they can be rebuilt or most do the bypass trick.
With brass rod or a piece of steel nail.
Resistor plug info, do you need it?
Also if you treat the carbon core like wire strand it will screw it up.
you should not jam it down the center of the carbon ones, it should be off to the side.
If you ever did you own plug wires for a car [cheaper to get a kit where you put on the boots when it comes to fancy brands], you fold the expose carbon on the metal cap, as its not a sold carbon product.
The juice flows on the outside.
Plus if you use an auto type plug [Autolite AP63] with the built in resistor, you don't need the stock caps anymore.
You can use the cap on the auto type wires.
Same with the coil end, ya don't jam it down the center, but off to the side of the carbon core.
