you could just run them outside the plug wire tube.

i have seen solid wires where that the little thing that goes into the
dist cap did not have probe that actually punches into the end of the wire.
checking with a ohm meter, get a open reading.
then get to looking at them, some have a spike like deal that sticks
up in the wire, and i have seen ends with out it and with a ohm meter

I still need to pull wires for the generator, points, and temp gage sender, so I can't tell how well it will work, but it looks good so far.

The Pertronix plug wires were stiff enough that I was able to just push them from the individual plug hole toward the front without a fish wire, and use a pair of long nose pliers to take the cross-over wires out through the cross-over opening. I did spray a bit of silicone lubricant on a couple of the wires as I felt more resistance as the wire tubes began to fill. I thought about going to an electrical supply store and purchasing some commercial wire pulling goo, but managed without it. If you are having difficulty, that might help. I may need to resort to a stiff fish wire for the smaller distributor, generator, and temp. sending unit wires. The old insulation on these wires is missing in parts, so I'll have to replace these wires as well. Don't want to scratch the plug wires though, so it would pay to put tape on the fish wire.
