    hey all,

    I’ll soon be ordering some new plug wires... any wire looms or separators that you favor? Clean and not too $$$ ?

    I am after a clean look and to avoid burning another hole in my wires :cool:

    a great deal of the options in the route youll take in installing ignition wires are determined by how you need to route the wires IE from over the valve cover or from under the headers
    most SBC but not all by any means route ignition wires following the upper route , many big block engines look far cleaner routing the lower route, under the headers, boot angles , and flex heat shield socks on the plug wires are also a factor

    I prefer the clean and simple look of the original factory setup shown in the second to last photo. However, I’m not up on how that still fits when headers are installed.

    My second choice is making the braided wire holders/separators using plastic ties. I never changed my wires and hardware the last owner put on my 71. Ain’t broke, not gonna fix it!

    Look, here is what you can do with plastic zip ties (old pics, everything looks a lot better now)

    This motor is missing the rear wire guides coming off the distributor and bolted to the block, so with the all the correct parts it will look even better.
