You'll have to go get some new high tension cable to put in the coils. The old coils have the wires integrated in the design and are not removable.

Try to get a copper core wire. It will give a better spark.

The plug caps just unscrew off with a brass screw that's built into the cap.

They should just unscrew from the wires by turning them counter clockwise.
