Can anyone tell me if Ford Racing makes a plug wire for the Cleveland. All I have been able to find is the 45d boot for the Windsor. I beleive the Cleveland requires a straight boot. What would be a good wire if these aren't available? Thanks in advance. Build is almost done!!!
I looked them up on Summit and couldn't find them. No wonder! I would like a blue or red set. The car is red , the motor blue. Does anyody know about the red Mallory wires on Summit? I have a Mallory dizzy.
I don't usually post much but don't use the Ford Racing wires even if they make a straight boot. I ran a set on my 393 but switched to msd wires(got a good deal from a friend), the resistance values of the two were astonishing. The shortest ford wire was around 1200 ohms the longest MSD wire was around 300 ohms. I would use a good quality wire like what joe, Dragboss, and Falcon67 suggest.
Just my 2cents from a young cleveland pup.
What you saw won't have any negative effect. The fact that you saw 1200 ohms means it is for reducing interference. 300 ohm wires will have more EMI but for racing that is OK -- not for regular passenger cars with radios
