Changing sparks

OK well I went and got some spark plugs and some of that stuff you put on the connectors. What do I do with it, and how much do I put on there? Thanks.

Using the dielectric gel enclosed with your wires will help increase the life of the product as a lubricant and as an anti corrosion material. Simply dab some gel from the package to the connection terminals on both ends before connecting. It is important to get the gel on the metal part of the terminal for the gel to properly function. On the plug end, it may be necessary to use a small screwdriver to get up into the plug end of the boot

Don't forget the electrode gap should be .84-.97mm if it helps :thumbs:
