Spark plug cap spring
« on: February 17, 2012, 03:34:26 PM »
What is the purpose of this spring.  It does not seem to perform any function except to make it a PITA to get it in without it slipping out.  With the lock ring on the cap, my caps stay on very well and are still a pain to remove.

It is supposed to make sure the contact is good...I just discard it, there is good contact without it...
