I love Caddy's but dang, what hell. I recently bought a fleetwood and decided to go ahead and replace the spark plugs and wireset. After about 2-3 hours of frustration and hair pulling, i have decided to elicit help from the forum gods. Does anyone have any tips on replacing the passenger side wires? I got the drivers side done fairly easily, but the passenger side is a PITA!!! i have remove the starter just to see 8,6, and 4, but i can bearly see 2. i read somewhere else that you have to remove the alternator to get to it. WTF!!!:bighead: Any help from u guys would be very much appreciated. Pictures are lovely too ;)

not a fun job, thats for sure, but you shouldnt have to remove anything,
I use some this mechanics wire to fish them thru behind the brackets
and a ton of patients, and a 12 pack of sam adams
also a good idea to mark things to aid in reinstallation,
also a little wd 40 on the wire to help them slip thru the tight spots

My trick that worked excellently was to change the plug wires when I installed the headers. :D Also most of these have to be routed from the bottom, not the top like you normally would.

headers would be nice, but not an option at this point in time. as for the routing yeah it sucks. I haven't had time to get back under the car but i plan on getting it finished this weekend.
Yeah I was so pissed off doing the plugs on my Fleetwood (though I have the L05 so I don't know if it's harder with the LT1) until I finally figured out it was easier to go from underneath the car!
