    Default Spark Plug Leads [old style]

    I've been asking around but have been unable to find anyone who stocks good old copper wire plug lead on a roll. I've tried Repco, Auto-one, the local mower joint and a few others.

    Any leads welcome.

    2nd page, on RHS

    They probably have the HT fittings as well. (edit -page 3)

    The pdf is 3.5mb , so be patient, if you have a slower connection.

    Bought my last lot, fabric bound, from a bloke at the Ballarat Swap.

    G'day Rob,

    nice reference, thanks. See the connectors are SS, seems clever, but, on the old time brass ones we used to solder the core - probably not necessary but it made you feel good....

    cheers,
    Bob

    We scored a large quantity of sheilded aircraft ignition lead years ago (the airlines stopped using DC3s you see) The stainless braid can be stripped off easily. We did run a CX with shielded ignition for some years, but it was fiddly to ground the shields at the dizzy. so we went back to solid leads and stopped trying to listen to the radio.

    Try aircraft spruce and specialty, or Hawker pacific... then get some smelling salts.
