i have looked at a few threads without much success so does anyone know where to buy good quality leads that can be cut to suit the required length :confused:

Craig (craggle) mentioned these

Roadcraft Repower suppliers of American engine parts from Edelbrock for Ford and Chevrolet V8 engines and Tremec transmissions (http://www.roadcraftuk.co.uk/index.asp?productID=TAY73651&display=main&Col_Category=Electrical+%26+Ignition&Col_SubCategory=Ignition+Wires&Col_SubSubCategory=Performance)

but they are 90 degree ends and i need straight ones (and they must be blue (i know its sad but boys and their toys :cool:)

Cheers

Hi Ian

Taylor do those leads in the straight version but I can't see any UK suppliers advertising them.
Taylor Cable 70655 - Taylor 8mm Pro Wire Universal Spark Plug Wire Sets - Overview - SummitRacing.com (http://www.summitracing.com/parts/TAY-70655/?rtype=10)

Have a chat with some of the UK engine builders like Mike Huddart. If he dosen't stock anything I'm sure he'll be able to get something ordered in for you.

Have a look at the Real Steel site. They stock all sorts of leads in many colours.:cool:

They have a good selection will ring them in the morning, are the MOROSO leads £61.50 worth the extra compared to the MALLORY set @ £31.60

Do you get what you pay?

Cheers

Hi Ian,
The HT leads fitted came with the Jacobs ignition system. Make sure the ones you buy are up to it.....

i used the pertronix leads and they came way too long. You specify what ends you want , mine came with straight plaugs ends made up with 90's unmade for the other end and you just cut them to length :D

I bought the Moroso leads but I needed the 135o ends and in yellow long enough for a Big Block with a loom kit fitted. (Very long heads).

As for the Mallory item, I can't say whether they are better or worse than Moroso, but I would say that Moroso products aren't the most expensive out there and are of a reasonable quality.
