Spark plug wires

Post by jamsbaugh7 » Tue Oct 29, 2019 10:42 pm

GENTLEMEN,I AM LOOKING FOR PERIOD CORRECT SPARK PLUG WIRES ALONG WITH THE BRASS THUMP NUTS THAT WERE USED ON 1941 CHRISCRAFT BARRELBACKS. WHEN BEING JUDGED,THIS AREA SEEMS TO BE CATCHING ALITTLE MORE INTEREST. JUST SO YOU KNOW ITS A .25 POINT DEDUCTION. THANKS JAKE (LAMBCHOP)

restoration supply should have the brass nuts. brian robinson can give the latest thinking on the preferred wire to be used. the prongs or loops (latter of which i think he prefers) would need to be attached to the wires as well as the fittings on the other end that go into the distributor. I think restoration supply probably has those too.
