So new plug wires came in today.
NGK, made in Japan. (not China)
53617

replacing very old ones, had one fail, wouldn't fire #5.
So needed them.
53618

All pretty except... now its got a miss.
Was running perfect before swapping plug wires.
I'll jump the ecm and pull codes tomorrow.
See what it's got going on I hope.
53619

Even swapped back old wires just in case,
also changed the plugs a set I had handy,
New plugs be here Monday set of NGK coppers.
Gremlins keep appearing, be swapping out
to a megasquirt ecm and complete control..
Pondering that anyway because will give me
ability to go coil on plug. The distributor was
was always a weak point in these.....

Sorted.....
Firing order is 1,2,3,4,5,6... simple Right,
Except look at the numbering on the cap,
53621

Yea cap firing order is 1,2,3,5,4,6....
Explains the gremlin and misfire on on cylinders 4 and 5...
Live and learn... My cap is not numbered like this one.
