In Reply to: Ed.....About those wires.... posted by George Mann on December 30, 2000 at 18:00:06:
Thanks for the words of wisdom. I was getting higher resistance on the short wires I was checking and I know that the rear most cylinder on the drivers side (does that make it 6 or 12 ?) has an erratic spark. Also one of the boots on the same side is also crushed (the ceramic boot is shattered)(my fault). I also noted burning where the wires run together near the distibution block.
I know that the erratic spark could be the plug as well and although I am not made of money, I figured that it was their time.
I see that places like bavarian motorsport sells the wires as well. I think they have them at $235 per side (same price for either side). The thing that concerns me about their wire sets is that the picture they show does not have the extra braiding between the chanel and the boot (I figure for heat) and I do not see the sensor that is on the no. 6 wire on both sides of mine (of course the e32 sets may have these, but if all I need to do is change my wiresets once every 120k miles, then I would rather have the better wires.
As far as the shovel goes. I would send you one of mine, but I seem to be using it every other day here in Cleveland.
