Spark-plug wires are simple in theory: Carry electricity from the distributor to the spark plug. But theory is where the simplicity ends. Millions of dollars are spent every year on design and technology to build a better wire, and sometimes installing those wires can be a trying exercise. That can be the case with installing plug wires on a shark. We’ve seen many instances where owners have removed the old set of plug wires and found a new path for the new set because they didn’t want to go through the steps to do it the way GM designed it. Chris Petris at the Corvette Clinic was doing a set of plug wires on an ’82 (arguably the most congested engine compartment of all shark Corvettes), and asked if we wanted to see how it’s done. Follow along as we go through the steps for a proper installation.
