    Ignition to spark plug connection DLE 30

    I feel silly asking this one....
    I have a new DLE30. I have never had a gasser.
    The ignition wire hub does not seem to fit the spark plug.
    Is it just supposed to be pushed down on the plug? It will take a lot of force to do it and I am afraid I will split the sheet metal cup.
    Am I missing a clip or something?

    Push hard and twist a little at the same time, Should completely cover the hex on the plug.

    It is designed that way to require some amount of force and a twisting motion to help push it completely on the spark plug as Milton advised.

    You can see in the photo how it sits on a DLE30. This is a MX2 73" span with a DLE30 in it.

    The six points on the hex works like a cam action to open the cap as you twist and shove the cap in place. I think it was" Antique" (RCIGN Ralph)who gave a good tip also...use some die-electric greese on plug post helps too. Capt,n
