    I bought new plug wires, cap/rotor, ignition coil and new ignition coil connector but the wiring is swapped either on mine or the new connector is either wrong or wired different. There's one wire next to upper intake on the old one and the two wires are on the outside and the new one is opposite is the one on the car been swapped or is the new connector wrong or what? I'm thinking someone has switched the wires on the old factory connector looking at the picture. Thanks in advance!

    Here's the old one

    you can probably pull the pins out and swap them with out too much trouble. Look down inside the harness and next to the pins is often a smaller pin you need to push while pulling the wires out.

    I can get the single wire out easily but can't figure out how to remove the double wired one.

    Can you get a pic of the front/back of the harness? It looks like an older style that has a metal flange in the pin of the harness that you need to bend in to pull out and then you will need to bend it back out prior to pushing it back in but I can't be sure.

    That's as good of picture I can get with a smartphone camera lol I finally got it out and switched the wires around I'll install it when I get home in the morning and see how it does. Thanks for the advice I hadn't even thought about pulling the pins out and switching them.
