[DML] Re: stage II (Faster Cap & Rotor Changes)



As John Hervey told me, there are many ways to accomplish changing 
the spark wires. He considered I found mine:

Being too lazy to take the intake manifold of, I turned my fingers 
into my eyes and with the help of a mirror I exchanged the cables one

chipped skin, a sore chest, but.... it started and ran straight away.
Mission accomplished, happy owner!

Welmoed.
