    At less than 100 for a tool 34379FDA-8823-4A64-AF80-C3FA4C220683.jpeg AE3B862D-C39C-4A9B-A9E4-3D79173C9A55.jpeg BDFD723A-393B-46D8-B3E6-091BBE5DA1D7.jpeg 6DF235FE-B8B8-4048-9330-A3D0BCA317FF.jpeg 20199731-8DA9-4AAC-A910-75ED7C63B915.jpeg mand a set of universal wires of 9(coil wire for older vehicles or separate coil from distributor cap etc) and boots in various choices, these nice looking wires are high quality, the bolts are silicone and seem really hood, snug, not weak, the ends snap on snug and take more than one removal before opening up. Because I have the tool(not necessary but worth it for me)

    I can wire any vehicle now for less than 50 dollars, which is only 20 more than the competition I had been using which frankly I’m not big on. Ends wise. Wires have been fine themselves.

    accel brand wire Dividers are OK but I’d like to see more variety or function variation on them. I have to check online because I’m using an orellies for reference. Blue in my pic is the ones I got.

    I’d also like to find aftermarket ends and boots for both ends of plug wires and I’m gonna redo wires of other sets I have that I can’t use because cheap mfing ends. Eve with grease.

    Really digging the yellow. I will be putting a set to my Electra and a set to my square most definitely. They sell small block sets premade, so might try that. Not sure how it will fit on a small block Buick beings the distributor location is much different than sbc, sbo, sbp. But I’ll get a set for square first and then use it eyeball first on Buick. I could make a couple short ones with my left Over 2 wires

    Thank you the supercharger was flaking it’s paint so I decided to hit with appliance epoxy. Ngl, digging it. Might go for that on valve covers which are gonna come up when I fix the snapped bolt on the front. Someone stressed all the bolts before because they wanna snap under hard hand tightening and have a tendency to vibrate out

    Accel does make sets that come with the cap end already installed, then a length of wire and you cut to fit and make the plug end yourself. Comes with a bunch of plug caps and the die to crimp the metal end for the plug, crimps it properly chucked up in a vice. I use MSD pretty much exclusively and their sets come like that. MSD even includes wire numbers the little clip on things that go over the wire in case you forget what wire is which changing a cap or something. Taylor, Proform, MSD, Mallory, gangs of makers

    @AuroraGirl,

    @Grit dog says that's some 3800, I have no idea, what does that go to? You said something about a Buick engine, is that it? What car has a little blower on it like that? Are they fast? My wife's '77 Buick Century Special had a 231 V6 in it. I loved that motor! I wish I still had that car, HEI ign., big 2 bbl. 2dr, TH350 trans, 10 1/2" disc's in the front, 11" x 2" drums in the rear. That car was built for speed. I never did figure out if it was the heavy wall block or the standard block, though.

    I bought that set. I just had to do the plug ends. I had the coil ends already it’s meant for a v8 with a ignition coil wire like pre hei or Ford. I only used 6 of 8 plug wires and there’s a coil wire hanging out in the box now lol.
    The Eaton m90 gen 3 is the stock l67 (3800 series 2 superchargedz) blower from about 94 to 2004 it was preceded by a previous one and proceeded by gen v which was bigger looking and way more efficient

    Those supercharged powerplants were options under the hood of half dozen or more cars. Aurora, riviera, regal, park Avenue, Bonneville, grand prix

    Keep mixing that yellow and blue and you'll wind up having the Volvo / Saab guys following you home.

    I’m Scandinavian as most of my lineage with an unknown amount from anyone one country so Sweden is close enough

    Be careful with that type of spark plug wire separator, I have had some that had some flashing in the pocket areas and they knawed the outer insulation of the wires pretty good from sliding them on and off, may have just been my luck, but something to look at, oil leaks are enough of a pain, don't need spark leaks too

    I was gonna get a different type for now it’s to keep me away from each other and metal but I’m definitely in the market for better ones anyway. Recommendation!?
