    Ok heres the deal. I am on holley's website in the clearance parts section. (30 some pages long) and on page 2 I see spark plug wires for a ignition point era big block chev (strait boots) in black 7 mm for a buck a set. I thought what the hell and ordered 10 sets and the shipping was only 5.50 so for 15 bucks 10 sets of plug wires, why not. I figured they would fit my off topic 66 396 chevelle, my BBC drag boat and most other applications where the wires run over the valve covers and can use strait boots. So a couple of days later they show up and man, they are real nice so being the idiot that I am I ordered 10 more sets and they came today... but wait at lunchtime at work today I wondered how many they had and ordered 20 sets (still 5.50 shipping) so you guys please help me and buy these things up so I don't end up drownding in them LOL. here is a link

    I figure that if I've used 2 sets in the past 20 years, 3 ought to last me the rest of my life
     
  7. Thanks for the heads up. Your link works fine. I tried typing clearance on their search engine trying to find some angle head wires and couldn't locate the wires you posted at all. How did you find the wires?

    I just started on page one, these are on page 2.... the weird part is the application chart only lists one chevy, something like a 72 chev van with a 402. I just put a set on my 66 396 chevelle and they fit perfect....

    I've only got one big block, don't know what it will end up in, so I only bought 5 sets. I'll presume I can shorten them for a small block, I've done it before.

  11. Hey, a deal's a deal, and if the price is right and you have the means to buy 'em, more power to ya'. Better to have 'em and not need 'em than the other way around! E

    I could just imagine the uproar if some woman decided to walk into Moriarty's life and start changing things around.
