Here are a couple of pictures.

Pic #1, oh wait that was what I did during the winter.

in the rest of the pics you can see the new coils hiding in the frame using the stock 86' GL12 or what ever 4 cylinder oldwing coil Mounts.

pic shows Old 86' 4cyl coil vs Newer MP08 coil you can see the #MP08 on the Coil.

there is a size difference.

Pic you can see the GL1500 Spark Plug wires on my 86' GL12.

Note: My GL12 has been coinverted to NAKED.

To clean up old spark plug Wires,

I used Old Brake fluid, when I evac the old brake fluid out, i store it in a gallon container, and use it for cleaning and renewing old Rubber parts.

It does a good job, leave it on for a hour or two, and should be good.

In the picture that is just wipe it on let sit one minute then wipe off, I did not have the time to wait

With the smaller coils you can definitely get your hands in a little easier than before.
