    85 js550 - screw on plug boots?Can

    Can anyone confirm if the plug boots on a mid 80s (85 to be exact) js550 are the screw on type plug boot? Picture below for reference.

    I don't think so, those look like the old piercing spring style to me. Either way you can pull them apart and refurb.

    correct.my mistake,thought op was wondering if they were the original boots.
    as bionic says, pull boot off and remove spring connector and install screw on type.
    originals were non resistor type.
