Those that have done the TR upgrade to an AMC V-8 , what type of vehicle did you ask that the plug wires be from when buying them ? Just helped a buddy do a tune up to his F-350 and the distributor looks more centered than my Jeep and dont think that length would work .Just wanted to know what you guys are using ?

While I`m in the question asking mood , on the stock V8 exhaust manifolds ,I`ve taken off those disconnected(and butchered) air pump rings that used to connect to the air pump . Seems that no one makes a 9/16 X 3/4 inch bolt in NF . Who has plugged those before and what did you use ?
Thanks .

Jeff

I think on the exhaust manifold where the lines hook up for the emissions, those fitting are pipe thread. I plugged some on some manifolds a while back and i remember using pipe plugs.(brass)

Thanks Mike . I kind of checked out a plumbing store but they didnt have any at 9/16 . I`ll have to check at Home Depot or something .

Jeff I think i used 1/8npt brass plugs which are similar to a 9/16 fine, let me know i'm intersted.Those tubes are a compression type so that should be pipe.(I think??)

I got the fine thread bolts at napa. They were longer than I needed but I just cut them down and put them in with locktight. That was september 98 and they are still there.

Oh, yeah, I used ACCEL spiral core wires for the tfi upgrade for a ford 351.
