I have a 1971 96, and I'm having a bear of a time getting a spark plug
wire to work on the front passenger's side plug. There is no room for
a standard plug wire to fit, and I've had trouble getting a 90 degree
angled wire to work also. Of course this is a very tight squeeze with
the altenator, and heater hose being in the way. Is there a shorter
plug available? Or any other suggestions are greatly appreciated!
Re: V4 spark plug wire questions
I have no problem fitting it to #1 plug with a 90deg angled terminal and
standard NGK BP6ES plugs. You can make some more room by taking the fan
belt off, then you can swing the alternator further to the right.
Also, fitting #1 spark plug can best be done with the original SAAB
spark plug wrench, the one with the handle to the side.
