Default NM Pajero plug lead to coil

HI, i am changing the plugs and leads in a 2001 NM 3.5 litre Pajero. I have the right lenght leads ont he spark plugs but did'nt check which lead goes onto each coil. I know the firing order is 1,2,3,4,5,6 with the drivers side 9right) 1,3,5 and the passengers side 2,4,6 but do they plug into the coil the same way? i.e does no 1 cylinder go into the first coil from the left and so on or what?

Thanks

Looking from front over the bullbar towards the back of the car it is from left to right at the coil packs 521436. Hope this helps.

Default leads

Yeah, Ii got the Aust made Eagle leads part no e56186. I hope they are OK. I got them from Ultra Cheap Auto for $110.00. I find Ultra Cheap in Kempsey great, good service and prices heaps cheaper than in Canberra.

Rock auto is a good option for cheaper plugs and leads

I found by bitter experience with my NL Pajero (running mainly on LPG) that NGK leads were by far the best, and because I was running on gas, I had tried other brands and they almost invariably failed, causing massive backfires, blowing the air filter box to pieces.

The recommendation for LPG use was to use spark plugs one grade colder than what was recommended for petrol engines. I ended up using Iridium plugs - mainly because the electrode was the thinnest of any plugs - a spark prefers to jump from or to a point rather than a broad surface. The iridium plugs were 0.4 mm diameter, whilst the OEM plugs were 0.6 mm dia platinum tipped plugs. Also, the Iridium plugs of a colder grade were not available in Australia, so I had to go to RockAuto for them. They were much cheaper, even with the freight costs included. Hint:- Try to get all your components from the one supplier, one place to minimise the freight costs.

Take special care when routing the spark plug leads. Try to avoid touching them to other leads, or to earth eg the rocker cover. The leads are very small (5 mm diameter) and therefore it doesn't take much for the insulation to break down. Another way to help with this problem is to reduce the spark plug gap slightly. I used to carefully close the gap from the original 1.1 mm down to about 0.9 mm. This made it easier for the spark to jump at the plug gap rather than breaking through the lead insulation, and also ensured longer plug life before the gap eroded to the point where insulation breakdown occurred.
