>for those whp suggest to squirt oil:do you do this directly where the plugs go in?i assume the thinner the oil the better <

Yes, but it isn't all that critical, the idea is to give the dry cylinder walls something for the piston rings to slide on.

>>for those who suggest taking plugs$coil out:is there not a danger when cranking from elect.sparks if the coil is not disconnected as well? <<

You can disconnect the coil wire from the center of the coil. This way you eliminate the chance of at spark jumping.

>>>what is the proper name for the coil?<<<
