    HT leads

    What do I need to do to hold/support/separate my HT leads for IVA?

    Looking for some inspiration, I can find separating clips on Ebay but no way of securing them to the engine/heads/rocker covers to keep them away from harm/heat.

    On my Sumo I manage to source some nice neat trays that bolted to the rocker cover bolts and held the leads along the length of the engine, but I can't find them again now.
    Regards

    No, I'm not "repairing" it, I'm fine tuning its performance.

    You could purchase some st/st perforated plate and have it bent to suit.

    I bought some aluminium trays from Speedway motors in the US - https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Bille...lled,2334.html

    Real Steel do something similar - check out page S9/4 of the accessories document.

    I saw this cable tie tip somewhere else, not sure if it would pass IVA but cant think of a reason why it would not be acceptable?

    mine passed IVA with something similar to this.
    your critical issue is making sure there’s no chance of leads burning on headers

    Also for iva make sure you can prove they are suppressed my leads aren't marked but I took the box they came in which said they are and they were happy with that

    That's what I used on my old Sumo, but the leads aren't long enough on this one. They go over the rocker covers rather than along them.
