 CAUTION 

Avoid contact with the boot to prevent contamination of the grease. Dirt can lead to shortened plug life.

NOTE: Do not overapply the grease.

Apply a pea-sized amount of dielectric grease, DuPont® Krytox™ 205 – Cummins® Part Number 3164956, to the inside of the boot. Spread it around the inner diameter to ease assembly on the plug.

NOTE: A new boot must be installed when new spark plugs are installed or when a boot has been damaged during removal.

Firmly press on the boot until a snap is heard and felt as the boot seats on the spark plug. Install the coil terminal end.
