There are little pointed screws on the inside of the cap which screw
up and through the wires in the cap.  Cut off the snap-on connector
ends on the distributor-cap-end of each wire and shove it in the hole.
Now screw the pointy screw through it.  Voila!  You may have to go the
the hardware store to buy a screwdriver which is both long and narrow
enough to get to those screws properly.  Personally, I love this
system as it seems much more secure than modern snap-down wires.
