What is the easiest way to get new spark plug wires through the metal tube that runs along the spark plugs?

The easiest way I've found is to use an electrician's fish tape. Feed the fish tape from the rear to the front , tape the the alternator,coil and diode wire to the loop of the fish tape. Use electrical tape to tape the wire to the fish tape. Use liquid detergent to lube the wires and pull them back through the tube. feed the fish tape down through the holes in the tube for each spark plug wire and tape the spark plug wire to the end of the fish tape and lube the wire with soap. Do the same for each of the spark plug wires. When you are done double check the wires to make sure that you have the right spark plug wire going to the right distributor port.

It's easier to remove the tube and run a long wire brush through the tube,pull the wires and then put the tube back on,cleaned up and painted,while it was off.Then put the cap ends on.---lha

Start with #4 first and work up to the shortest. The cheaper hard plastic insulated wires are actually a little easier to push through.

First, take the old ones out, Ha Ha. If they have boots for the plug end and 'cut to length' add your own dist. clips and boots, it should be fairly obvious. A little Vaseline or grease will help. Make sure the inside of the tube is CLEAN. HTH
