Nology Hotwires won't fit dist. cap

Postby CelicaGT4 » Mon Oct 11, 2004 9:51 am

So I went to install my Nology Hotwires (spark plug wires) and they won't fit my distributor cap. I was wondering if anyone had these and what they did to make them work. I think they would have let me know if I had to buy a nology dizzy cap to make these work or even came with them for the price I paid. Anybody?

Well I know they changed the distributor cap between 1992 and 1993
on the MR2 turbo so maybe you got the wrong year wires for your
3sgte.

yeah i had that problem too... the part numbers are the same for both years even though they are different caps...

maybe you can swap caps?

It's easier to change the cap to fit the wire, I guess.

ok, so heres the deal. I called nology and talked to them and they sent me the wrong wires like said up above. I guess it was for a different year of alltrac. So basically what I need to know is what year of distributor cap do I need to fit these wires....they sent me the skinny connectors that go into the dist. cap when I need the thick ones. But I am replacing my rotor and cap anyway so it really doesn't matter. I just need to make sure I get the right cap....
