45,000 volts is rather shocking is it not?

Maybe the insulation is not so good anymore.

Sounds like physics. Hey, I have done it too. Don't feel too bad unless your arm starts hitting in your sleep. I do remember not to do that again or hold spark plug wires tooo.

recently did tune up changed wires and plugs. could it be the distributer cap?

Some older cars had a resistor in the distributor or between it and the dash that may be bad. If it is you will hear junk in the radio speakers.

Don't grab the wire!
