Thanks, wooky. And interesting. I figured any grease of any sort would impeded conduction, but I guess that's they call it "dielectric". Does it make sense to put the grease on the metal contacts of both ends of the wire—the cap end and the spark plug end?

I've been using it more and more lately to prevent / cut down on corrosion of contacts and such. Used on battery terminals there is almost none of the white crap build up that eventually causes electrical problems and "no starts"

I've also been using dielectric in switches I "rebuild", greases and cuts down on corrosion inside

Some days it's just not worth chewing through the restraints

So far this winter my car has been much more reliable than previous years. I've had no problems with cold starts or stalling. I only drive it once or twice a week around town. Being a college student money has been tight and I haven't been able to afford to try another eBay EZL, but I will when I can.
Ebay offers free returns even if the seller doesn’t . You should never lose a penny by buying in ebay if the part doesn’t work . Ebay will refund you in full as long as you mail it back and will usually even give a prepaid return label
