[DML] Re: Spark plug boot hopping



Pull off the wire and pull back the boot a little along the lead, 
when putting it back on the plug make sure the metal retainer goes 
right over the spark plug top, I use a screw driver to push them 
on .... i think that this retainerisnt pushed right onto the plug. 
Then push back the boot over the engine lip.
