I have a 1939 Plymouth with a flat head 6. My question is how can I separate the clam shell spark plug wire holder to install new plug wires. the plug wires I purchased have already been assembled and I really don't want to cut the ends off and feed them through if I don't have to. It looks like it may slide apart, but I can't get it to move. I didn't try too hard for fear of damaging the wire holder. Thanks

You should be able to slide the rubber end caps, the ones on the ends of the wires that go to the distributor cap, over the ends of the wires and then feed the wires through.

Then replace the end caps.

Thank You. This is my first Plymouth so I want to make sure everything stays as is. Don't want to mess it up. It's such a cool old car.

Maybe a can of silicon spray lube would help.
