Spark plug wire replacement

Postby daaaon » Tue Aug 28, 2012 9:06 pm



First I need 7mm copper core wire correct?

so ignition wires screw into spark plug caps, is there any wire prep ?

so ignition wires screw into ignition coil, is there any wire prep ?

Or do I just cut to length and screw on clockwise to both ?

they screw in as you said. no prep . there is a screw inside the ends that screws into the wire.

7mm copper core. Mine screwed into the cap boots but just pushed into coils. At the coils there is a cap that screws into coil and a little sleeve on the wire. Sort of a compression fitting.
