LOCTITE® Super Glue for Easy Spark Plug Wire Installation
Anyone who has attempted to install spark plug wires on a motor knows that the process can be meticulous and challenging. I recently completed this task on my 69 Chevelle stroker motor with the help of a LOCTITE® cyanoacrylate (CA) adhesive known as LOCTITE® Super Glue.
Spark plug wire separators (sometimes referred to as looms) are used to position and hold the spark plug wires in safe positions, to protect them from damage and interference. The separators that I selected are made up of two halves. One has a hexagonal hole, which receives a nut, and prevents the nut from spinning when you attach the mating half and insert the hex head cap screw.
When you use these separators, you must insert at least two – and possibly even four plug wires – into the section with the nut, and then cover this assembly with the mating half. The two pieces must then be held together while you insert the hex head cap screw and tighten it into place.
By using a CA adhesive (or LOCTITE® Super Glue) to securely hold the nut in place, you have one less problem to worry about during assembly. Typically, the nut has a tendency to fall while you are trying to grasp everything within a very tight space. When the nut is bonded into the separator with the CA that saves a lot of time and aggravation with this repair and/or replacement process.
