Default Spark Plug Wireset

I've searched and found the post about changing the spark plugs, which is super!

I need to change the wireset, as well. Is there a tutorial on the wires, too?
Sorry if this is a redundant question, believe me, I have searched.

Thanks,

Alynn

Always best to replace wires and plugs at same time.
Just do the wires when you do the plugs.
Do one wire at a time so you don't louse them up.

And here's a Youtube video:

It's just to Easley to mess up. You can take a pic before you start of the wires on your cell phone, if you need to remember it.

wow! if I did that I would go broke. I change my plugs before any track day,after the track day, after a road trip exceeding more than 1000 miles or *once a year or *12,000 miles(*that never happens because of the latter)

Todd might I suggest to use a different youtube for your example. There is so much wrong with that one I would know how to begin.

Did you actually look at that video before you posted it?????

I only watched a few seconds of it. In the future, I'll start sending them to you to review for me.

Also, I notice that you change your plugs quite often. That's interesting. Back in the day when folks where I live really hated Champions but that was all that was often available, folks often reported having to change them all the time because they would foul out at the drop of a hat. Seems you may need to consider changing brands.

Yes the video get worse as it continues on. I think you can prof watch your own vidoe's. ours plug/wire change would have been very good by itself!


As for my spark plugs and why I change them wells...
Um.....

Maybe I should show you a 1/4 TIME slip?

Maybe I should show you my average lap time at Laguna Seca compared to other's, print out?

Maybe I should show you what I really get for MPG in my PT Cruiser?

Maybe I should show you a video of a filled glass of Champagne on my hood engine running AC on in gear with my PT Cruiser?

Okey Dokey then..moving right along.

Wow! So many things wrong with that video. I would be totally embarrassed to put a video like that on YouTube. What really floored me was he didn't even show the visual procedure of torquing the spark plugs. I wouldn't want that guy on the video within 3,000 miles of my PT Cruisers!
