I have 9.0mm Eagle Eliminator leads on my ride. The have done 30000km and I was wondering how much life was left in them??

What are the best leads out there??? :shock:

best way to check is with a multimeter. when they get to about 12K ohms they're about had it. while your mucking with them, you'd be best to test the coil and dissy.

Decent leads like the ones you have already, should easily last 100000km. If it ain't broke don't fix it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have just replaced the leads in my EF last week as the old ones had started crossfiring and leaking HT.

The old leads lasted me 5 years 9 months and travelled 103948 Km (yes I keep a history)

They were genuine Motorcraft leads and I have once again replaced them with Motorcraft ... no complaints about reliability or performance of them.
