Basically...make sure that you don't damage the wire or the boot. When you reinstall them, put a dab of dielectric grease on them.

Be careful when removing the plugs. They can crack. As for installation, do NOT over torque the plugs. They should go until they stop, then a sitxteenth of a rotation. Our plugs have seats on them; they are not tapered threads. When reattaching the plug wires, they should go on until they click.


BTW, do you need a set of plugs? I have a spare set of Motorcraft ASGF32FM plugs that only have about 3K in them. I went to colder copper plugs, and don't need these. I will sell them to you cheap.

Also, be careful with the dielectric grease. I used it on the Vulcan, and some of it got up all over the terminals and gave me a rough idle 5000 miles later, after the grease baked dry. I wiped the dry residue off with alcohol and put the plug wires back in place and it smoothed out the idle. FWIW, I don't think you need the grease at all if you are using wires with silicone boots. They don't seem to stick to the insulator like the stock rubber ones do.
