I was just changin over my plugs, as im gettin gas and the last ones wer gettin a bit old. Foolishly I pulled the lead by the lead, not by the bit that goes over the plug and I snapped the lead :(. So im gonna get new leads. I am told I should have changed em anyway as im goin onto gas. What should I be paying? What are the brands to buy? Is it worth the extra to get better ones. Spending $90max

My gas conversion included ICE HEI 8mm leads. Fine so far. Expensive but meant to be worth it. And they have a big solid part around the plug so you cant break them :roll:

I had a AU III with factory gas, which was always serviced at the local ford dealer and they always put the genuine leads on that ford use, motorsport are they??? Anyway, they never missed a beat.

uh, the boot and the lead had little friction between them, everytime i tryed to push them onto the plug the lead would just slide out of the boot, making the contact go deeper and deeper into the boot not allowing the plug to actually even reach the contact.
