Am I missing something with HT leads?!

Some new coils turned up today but they have unterminated ends. I just looked in a stock lead and there's a screw which the plug seats in and behind it a resistor and a spring but I can't see anything further than that. Do these come apart??

Those pieces look almost exactly like the coil on cap leads from my Nissan Altima. Those in your pic surely do not have a place in a 900RR coil wire set.

Is that the new set up or your old set up?? Regular 900 leads are just a shielded wire that goes between the coil and the coil cap. The coil cap is a screw press fit, as is the end into the coil itself.

The brass connector unthreads to reveal the resistor, but noting else is there.

Oooooops the spring just came out. The brass piece has a clip to engage the treads of the top of the spark plug.

Re: Am I missing something with HT leads?!

That's the stock set up, I took the brass bit, resistor and spring out but can't get any further

My new coils look like this:

So I can't figure out how to marry the two up

In my 1/4 century dealing with 900’s I’ve never unscrewed that brass piece.

You’ve taught me something J.

Re: Am I missing something with HT leads?!

Thanks guys I get it now, you just yank them out and force another one in! All done and running smoothly, when it's daylight I'll take it out and see if there's any difference but I doubt it as we're heading down a fuel path I feel!
