@Racer X, What’s your take on the dielectric grease as far as application? I’ve heard just to use it on the boots and other synthetic/rubber areas but not the contacts themselves. Your thoughts? Thanks

Silicone grease mostly seals out moisture, and also makes it easier to push the boots on and take them off. It isn’t conductive, so it doesn’t aid in the electric connection, but in addition to sealing out moisture, it also keeps conductive dirt out of the connection, the plug wire terminals should be tight enough that there will still be good mechanical contact with the sockets.

Also use it at the spark plug boots.

Be tidy with it, wipe any excess off of the outside, as dust and dirt will collect on any squeeze out.
