    Hello.

    I was curious to check the spark plugs, they are Autolite and I see that they rust!
    In the CJ5 Good Book they write Champion J8. space .30 (7,62mm)
    What do you suggest ?
    I also want to change the 4 wires coming from the Delco and to the coil, they are worn, horrible.
    I don't find them in France, maybe it is better to make them from wire.
    Nothing stay perfect in the time...

    I have always used the J-8.

    They are also used in lawn mowers and other small engines, which means they are even available in local hardware stores etc

    External rust is a non issue. Your 4 cylinder is as low tech as you can get. This means you can run any brand spark plug you want. Autolite, AC, Champion, Nindenso, etc will all work fine. Since you should be inspecting/regapping them every 3 to 5 thousand miles, you can keep an eye on their state.

    Plug wires can be had on line from numerous vendors or you can purchase a universal kit and build your own. If you go that route, insure you have the proper boot ends and crimper tool to do the job right.

    For plug wires, you have your choice of 6 different makers in the USA, from just this one seller. And no Omix. 1970 JEEP CJ5 2.2L 134cid L4 Spark Plug Wire Set | RockAuto

    Suggest you look for each of these by part number. You can also look for a universal set, as suggested above. The Crown wire set you link to should be ok. However, it is far from exotic and you should be able to find something similar locally.

    Not sure what's easily available in France, but Standard makes several 4-cylinder universal sets that are very inexpensive. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/smp-69811 Should be something similar available there.

    I like Autolites, just personal preference. I agree on Standard wires, cheap and durable. Cut to length means you can make them perfect.
