From what I read, carbon plug wires are higher resistance, might decease voltage to plugs. Trying to figure out why engine is skipping and not idling well. rebuilding carb didn't help.

Carbon Fiber plug wires

My engine was rebuilt here in Nova Scotia and came back with new plug wires. Are the new carbon fiber wires compatible with A4 ignition system?

Oil does indeed look gray. I drained it and will change it again. Still only have compression on #4, although I can see some valves moving in other cylinders when I crank it.

rebuild

I recently rebuilt the carburetor, using Moyer Marine rebuild kit. Took maybe 1 1/2 hours. Good diagrams with kit. Only recommendation is to be sure to have some small screwdrivers to get jets out.

Racor filter size

Don: Is there a reason why you offer the larger 320 series(60 GPH) rather than the 120 series(30 GPH)? I can't see the A4 needing a real high flow delivery rate.
