I bow in the face of creative backyard engineering
It just goes to show how we really CAN make do with what we have LOL.
I remember my first car, 78 Olds Omega, had bad plug wires. One was completely out. I found a piece of 12 guage solid wire, it was insulated, so I crimped it around the distributer post and kinda looped it around the sparkplug, then carefully routed it away from anything metal. Worked good for a month till I could afford plug wires. Radio reception sucked for awhile LOL
