Re: Firing order/ spark plug wires
You need the 45 degree ends for your plug wires because those headers are close. No one can look at an internet picture and go over your firing order with you.You'll just need to find # 1 and then finish 18436572.Your best bet is to get some wire dividers and put them on when you replace the wires.If you're not going to replace them right away you can temporarily "repair" the wire ends that melted with some Ultra Grey RTV.It's made of the same stuff the plug ends are made of and once it's dry it will insulate the plug from misfiring but you still would need to replace those wires eventually.
Also anything that's black,you know stuff like elec tape,radiator&vacumm hoses,that clamp you used, those kind of things makes a bad plug insulator as the black coloring is usually made of black carbon which is a great elec conductor.
