What a dummy I be. I never thought to look at the new wires that I bought from an unmentionable mercedes parts outlet. They gave me 5 k ohm wires, now that I looked at them. They also gave me resistor plugs. which I replaced with none resistor W8DC Bosch plugs. All the heat is concentrated at the wire end of the plugs. could 5 k ohms make that much difference? What kind of wires and plugs will I have to use if I convert from points to mag. pick up in the dist.? help Boyd
