Ap63 question

PostAuthor: minitruth1984 » Fri Sep 08, 2017 8:43 pm

So i ordered some ap63s i was doing some searching here and read about the whole resistor in the wire thing. I saw some people say in a thread that they just replaced their wires does anyone know what wires will work? I saw that you can just put part of a nail in but i would much rather buy wires. Thanks for the help.

see this ---> https://viragotechforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=7049

I used 7mm cable from Accel. 8mm should work also.

solid copper core is best [IMO] but newer "graphite/ferrite" versions will work.

go to your local auto parts store or tractor supply, they usually have spark-plug cable available on bulk rolls

Ok awesome the only thing that is throwing me off is the cable ends if i bought an accel universal kit it will come with the correct connectors for my plugs? Ive never really thought about cable ends before because working on cars ive never had to do anything but replace them with the correct cable so this is throwing me off a little.

the accel kit comes with soft, 'rubber' caps

it's the same as a car except how they fit into the coil.

the whole resistor thing is about Radio Frequency Interference which usually comes across as popping or buzzing noise on your radio or mobile device - very annoying :hair:

I'm told, if severe enough it could interfere with unprotected delicate circuits [chips in an ecm?]

The only difference is you don't have to remove the cap on top of the spark plug, leave it on as you would a car.
