I did a search on this, and didn't see anything that gave me a clear answer. My wires have some grease/oil/etc on them and generally just don't look nice. Anybody know a good way to clean them up without screwing them up?

Be very carefull about excessive handling (especially bending). You could drive the resistance on the wire so high that it would fail to deliver spark if you bend them! This is especially true on noise-suppressed wires (the most common type).

Lacquer thinner and plenty of clean rags. Just be patient and careful.

The tip about lubricant is good, but even more important with the HEI or other "High Output" ignition systems.

Don't know enough to explain, but most anyone here could confirm.

Later!
