Recommended Posts

hey guys I am installing plug wire covers but my stock wires dint seem to be long enough to route to the back anyone know if there are longer premade wires or do you use cut to length?

Measure you old wires and go to NAPA  You can buy individual wires by the length.

The cut to fit aren't all that bad to work with if you have the tool.

Its a two piece aluminum deal that you use in a vise to make the crimp.

It also has holes in it with slots at the right depth to cut and strip the ends.

I have done several this way,  as the early Hemis also have covers to hide the wires.

Use dielectric grease to make the boots slide easier.

BTW think 65 Rivs used embossed Delco plug wires. Silk screened ones were later.
