Spark plug wires

I'm about to do the TR upgrade and was wondering what spark plug wires to use? Or for what vehicles I should buy them for. I bought a set for a 85 ford 300 but the coil wire won't work. also I'm mounting the coil on the fender well how can I get a coil wire long enough is there a V-8 wire set that will work and not be so long so I could use an extra wire for the coil?

Thanks,
Viper

Re: Spark plug wires

what i did was buy a v-8 custom wire set.. one that you cut to length yourself and crimp them together.. that way you make the lines as long or short as you want and run them where you want.. cost me like 50 bucks for set of 8.8 mm's.. probably accel..

Re: Spark plug wires

I bought a set of MSD 8.8 wires (PN# 3134) from Summit. The coil wire was not short but really didn't have alot of slack. I sent only the coil wire back to MSD with measurements for one with enough slack and they sent me one free. This was in a CJ5 V8 with coil mounted to fenderwell.

Re: Spark plug wires

I'm also doing the TR upgrade, and I was wondering about the distributor removal/installation. Is it just a pop out, pop back in deal with the new Motorcraft, or what is the procedure. No one seems to know, or won't let on for some reason. I could seriously use some input here. I'm in a bind.

Re: Spark plug wires

I went from a points distributor to a Motorcraft distributor with MSD 6A ignition. CJ Dave was really great with the play-by-play when I was doing mine. Do a search on this topic and you will find all the info you need to remove your distributor, finding TDC, and the little tricks to getting the new distributor back in. I did mine back in Feb/Mar of last year when this was a really hot topic. You can perhaps ask TeamRush for info also. He will always lend a hand.
