INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSTALLING TAYLOR PRO SERIES CUSTOM FIT WIRE SETS

  1. Custom fit spark plug wire sets are ready to install. Some sets have an additional coil wire to fit various models.
  2. Change only one wire at a time starting with the longest. Remove by twisting boot to break seal. Grasp boot and pull with a steady motion. DO NOT pull on the wire.
  3. Select a new wire that is approximately the same length as the old one. . . 4. Use silicone compound when included and carefully apply a thin coat on the inside of the spark plug boot, distributor boot, and coil boot. This compound will insure proper sealing, prevent arcing and boots sticking to spark plugs. Use a clean cotton swab or similar tool to apply. Read precautionary note.
  4. Install new wire on spark plug securely. Listen for, or feel the "snap" of the terminal on to the plug. Distributors, coils and male posts should be installed in the same manner.
  5. For distributors and coils with female sockets, press brass terminal into socket and slide nipple onto tower.
  6. Repeat steps 2-6 until all lead are installed. Install wire into separations and loops. Inspect wire routing to insure that wires and boots do not come in contact with exhaust manifolds and other high heat, high abrasion areas.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSTALLING TAYLOR PRO SERIES UNIVERSAL WIRE SETS
