    • Connect the spark plug wires to the new distributor cap one at a time. Mixing up the order will result in the engine not firing properly or at all.

    • Pull straight up on the boot of the first spark plug wire to disconnect it from the distributor cap.

    • Be sure to pull on the boot and not the wire itself. Spark plug wires are quite fragile and may break easily.

    • Install the spark plug wire onto the new distributor cap and make sure it is seated properly.

    • Continue to transfer each spark plug wire to the new distributor cap, maintaining the same arrangement of wires on the cap.

    • Once all of the spark plug wires have been installed on the new distributor cap, set the cap aside.

    • Remove the old distributor cap.

    • When installing the new distributor cap, don't forget to reconnect the center ignition coil wire.
