Are you sure the wire is shot??????? or is it just the end that hooks onto the plug?????? you can just get the replacement ends at your local friendly hood hardware store. or even some auto part stores. anyhoo, ALOHA from the Paradise City.:smiley-rpg027::smiley-rpg027::smiley-rpg027::smiley-rpg027::smiley-rpg027::smiley-rpg027:

Can't see where it goes or what kind of job it is to get at it

It's attached, you have to replace the coil. However, what about slitting a rubber hose around it? Or take the end off, use shrink wrap tubing and then instead of slitting a hose, slide it on, then put new ends on.

Their ideas will certainly be a lot easier, and much cheaper than replacing the coil. Worth a try...

To get at the coil you would have to remove the recoil housing to get at the flywheel area, where the coil lives. You also have to remove as much of the engine shrouding as necessary to get the plug wire exposed so the new one can be routed the same way as the old one was.

I've changed plug wires on other cdi engines, the wire threads onto a steel spike in the coil, the coil has a spiral spike that augers into the core of the wire. Outter insulation is epoxied to the coil. Snap the epoxy loose and unscrew it from the coil. Screw new plug wire on and secure with blob of epoxy.

i would just use some heat shrink tubing.

Liquid tape then shrink tape that should do it.
