    Where can I purchase new sparkplug wire water shields. This part seals out water and crud from getting down where the sparkplug screws into the cylinder head.

    $200.00 t0 $500.00 for new sparkplug wires seem rather high.

    Thanks

    I think you are referring to the rubber 'boot" that is on the wire & goes over the plug hole.. may wanna try one of the sponsors here.. is my first recommendation...

    BTW do you have a spare parts catalogue (SPC)?

    If those are the same black boots as were on my 78 308GTS, then they do not come with the spark plug wire sets anyway, it is a seperate part. They were about $7 each from T.Rutland's when I bought 8 of them 6 or so years ago. I needed them, as everytime I drove in the rain or washed the car, I would get water leaking past those seals and cause a short and spark plug fouling. New boots and all was good again! :)

    If you do need a new wire set, you can get nice ones from www.kingsborne.com. They use factory type end fittings so it should look oem. Their sets for the 355 look almost identical. I have not personally seen them for the 308/Mondials though.
