Today I went to start my recently trusty starting K, no voom voom so started checking. I had sparky sparky and squirty squirty. All I could think of was that we had overfilled the engine oil on the river a few weeks back giving impressive blue smoke on startup. Checked plugs and they looked a bit off so down to Halfrauds for some NGK's (8 euro for 4 Very Happy), chucked them in and it started, voom voom was back. I noticed some wear on a HT lead and it was "leaking" some spark.
So the question, what do I replace my 26 year old leads with?? I don't need so called high performance just a good leads at a reasonable price.

Or, buy the correct length universal 8mm leads and screw on the proper length/angle NGK 5K ohm resistor caps, as I've done, and you'll be laughing.

I posted this suggestion the other day...

I am going to be fitting myself a set the price it shows is for a set rather than individual and apparently are good.

HT Leads
