Arcing between spark plug wires??
I put new wires on 25k ago and they are starting to arc between the wires already? I properly routed them and have not touched them since they were installed. Are the wires the only source of this problem or could there be other causes?

Stock Ford 8mm wires. If that is the case, that is pretty disappointing considering I got over 100K out of the previous set.
Are all the wires arcing or just a couple? The OEM wires are pretty good wires, but it's possible that you might have gotten a couple bad ones. They weren't rubbing against anything?
No rubbing. There is a arc between one wire and the coil bracket and the two wires that run ontop of the DS valvecover are also arcing.
I had this exact problem b4 i sold my bird. All 4 wires were arching and i had oem motorcraft ones with far less than 25k maybe 8k at most. Is it arching by the wires that are routed under the alternator??? If so i figured it was either heat or them rubbing. Reroute some new ones over the top of the alternator and put some of that flexible plastic perfurated tubing for wires just to protect them

I have not inspected the wires under the alternator, but they are covered with the plastic wire looms you are talking about. Oh well, I am just going to order some new wires and be done with it. I need to get it running so I can finaly get it over to the body shop. Thanks for the help guys.
