Splice Or Build Ignition Wire?

Recommended Posts

I replaced my wife's '94 LS400 water pump this weekend with all but one thing going smoothly. When putting the right side distibutor cap cover back on, I apparently left one of the spark plug wires loose or misrouted. When I started the car I heard a flapping sound coming from under the cover, and later discovered that I cleanly sheared a plug wire. Since my ignition wire set is practically new (and I haven't found anyone to sell me a single wire), my question is: can I repair this wire by splicing it back together, or buy some generic ignition wire and reuse my connectors to create a replacement?

Does anyone have any experience with this? I've seen generic ignition wire kits that require cutting to required length and then crimping on connectors, but I've never done it myself.

Any help would be greatly appreciated by me and my wife.
