(On an 18 year old Mercruiser 5.0LX quadjet engine....)Now I cant speak for where mercury spark plug wiring is made, but I wish I kept my personal philosophy on Sierra oil and fuel filters, which is... spend a few dollars more on a Wix or Mercruiser oil and fuel separator filter rather than a cheap Sierra filter. Two of my 8 spark plug wires, the metal clip inside the insulation that clips onto the distributor cap and spark plug were tucked back in under the insulation cover. It was almost as if the internal wiring was shorter than the length of the insulation!!! Had to do some mickey-mousing around to get it to clip onto the contacts firmly like their suppose to, instead of just a rubber cap sitting gently on top of a contactor. I tried some pulling and whatever, but you cant make a wire any longer than it was made. And now i am concerned I'll have only 6 or 7 cylinders on a v8 running! Im going to have to do some checking to make certain those wires are connected correctly. I think...
The picture of this item is not "OF" this item! the wires are blue and look great BUT, the set actually has male ends on one side and female (spark-plug) ends on the other. This picture shows female on both sides (until they change or add pictures to this item).
Amazon returned the item with no issues and I have the correct ones now!
My new ones are from the same manufacturer and are great quality!
