...and shrink hands (somehow), as getting under the MPFI manifold is a b**ch.

Wot they said but don't bend arm 4 ways; try about six! Eb coil lead is easy to get to from underneath as is second clip for dizzy cap.

wait, do you want to change your leads or your spark plugs, your title seems to conflict with your post.

You guys saying it would be easier to drive my car onto ramps and do the leads that way instead of trying to do them from the top?

I accidentally pulled one of the leads out of one of the ends on n.o 6. I just forced the thing back in a few months ago. Might do them today then. Saves a bit of time with ramps then hey? 8-)
