    Comments about Accel Universal Fit Super Stock 8mm Spiral; Spark Plug Wire Set:

    I needed a new set of plug wires for my car. These were listed as "Exact Fit" for my 1970 Buick Gran Sport Stage 1 455 but they are for 75 and newer HEI distributor ends with the tower type terminals with integrated coil. I needed the old press-in ends for the old points type distributor cap with a coil wire. This was not listed any where on the description of the product online.

    I'll will try to exchange them at the store. This would have been instantly obvious in person but the description failed me.

          Comments about Accel Universal Fit Super Stock 8mm Spiral; Spark Plug Wire Set:

          Set comes with 2 types of right angle distributor-side boots. If the set is going to be a universal "fits all" set, then it should also come with straight boots. Not thoroughly impressed as I'd hoped to be.

              Ignition caps came off once the engine started running. The rubber part fit tight when cold but come off completley when hot.

              The metal contacts were too small for the towers so they just popped right out.

              This is going on a Ford 302 V 6.

              This is not a good fit for my application.

                  A:

                  In engines that are run by gasoline, the proper firing order is achieved by the proper placing of the wires for the spark plugs to the distributor. A unit for engine control will handle the firing sequence. On vehicles that have distributors, they will have the firing order cast somewhere on the engine. It can usually be found on intake manifolds, the cylinder heads, or on its valve covers.

                  They may but I am thinking you will run into problems with how the boots are set up.
