Gary,
Good idea to check the plug wires, but I have never heard of a reliable test for this other than a visual inspection and that only catches the obvious flaws. Replacement is the test.

As far as plugs go, you will find that almost everyone has an opinion regarding their favorite and a reason for choosing it. I like Bosch WR5DP and WR5DP+ platinum plugs since that is what the factory used. They are more expensive, but I think they tend to last longer under normal conditions. Some favor the Japanese plugs like NKG BPR7EIX and BP7EVX.

The oil pressure sending unit can be a challenge. Mine came out fairly easy. I bought a wrench at The Home Depot and bent it using my oxy-acetelyne torch. Use a new aluminum crush washer and don't go quite so tight.
