    I don't think doing it on a hill is a good idea, if hes not careful and drops all the sparks from the leads you could end up chasing them down hill, and they are fast you know.
    let us know how you got on

    Geo I don't even understand what I meant about the hill:Confused:

    Anyway she done and running like a dream and flying up hills:winky: with no dying out. The plugs were absolutely knackered and must be the originals:eek:

    Got clipped a bit on the bill and how long he reckoned he had worked but hey ho:RollEyes:

    Stuck £150 worth of fuel in so broke now:wub:

    While driving g around waiting found an American car specialist on the same industrial estate who would have done it far cheaper.

    Going to get him to fit LPG to the Jeep.

    :rofl: Let me see now?

    1. 30 minutes to remove and replace each plug.
    2. 30 minutes to remove and replace each Plug wires.
    3. 30 minutes to remove and replace Distributor Cap.
    4. 15 minutes to free and replace the Rotor.
    5. Lucky he didn't have to remove the distributor and module?
    6. Nearly forgot? Cup of Tea while running up and testing the engine for 45 mintues.

    That should come to about £3 - 4 shillings - 6 pence plus VAT = £253 :roflmto:
