Spark Plug Wires

Author: CFF

Spark plug wires should be kept off the valve covers and, more particularly, the exhaust manifolds and shields, and separated from one another. A ‘flutter’ at 60-70 mph was traced to a spark plug wire which was ‘bleeding’ its electrical current causing low firing at the spark plug.

A quick check on a dark night - lift the hood, engine at idle, and look around. If there is anything untoward in this area, it will be easily apparent! The pyrotechnics will advertise their presence quite well!

Wire sets are available from many sources, Delco #SS-563B being one. However, if you want top performance, try Direct Connection’s 8 mm wires, their number P4529032.
