Thanks for the other ideas as well... every easy cheap idea is a great idea to me
As FORBYE advised; dividers herp prevent corr-fire;
Misfiring/Pinging due to Improper Spark Plug Wire Routing for 5.8
94-96 5.0 HO - INCLUDES 5.8
- engine miss, spark knock, buck/jerk, surge and other driveability concerns

Engine miss, spark knock, buck/jerk, surge and other driveability concerns may be caused by induction crossfire. This occurs because of improperly
routed spark plug wires
If spark plug replacement is performed, the correct firing order and spark plug wire routing is essential to prevent the possibility of induction crossfire
between cylinders. Refer to the following procedures for inspection of the spark plug wire routing and firing order. Properly reroute the spark plug wires
To eliminate the possibility of the coil wire becoming disconnected, route the coil wire under the spark plug wires at the distributor cap.
Also, I use a short vacuum hose section to slip over spark plug to help thread in & it helps to prevent cross-threading when using socket & ratchet; esp in #4
