Cub plug wire crowding, can I get a 90 degree wire set?

Postby ccaissie » Thu Jun 30, 2016 8:38 am

The distributor cap area just seems so crowded against the oil filter body with the wires coming straight off the cap. It just seems like 90 degree fittings on the plug wires on both ends would be nice, like you see on car V8 distributors, etc.

Or am I all wrong about these wires? I plan to buy a set of copper core wires...

Best source for the best wires?

thanks,
Colin

I used to work in a auto parts store and needed to replace the wires on my cub. I searched through many sets trying to find a alternative to the original set. I found a set for a Geo Tracker 4 cylinder was close. No interference problems.

You can always get some copper cored wire and then find a cheap set of 90* automotive wires and strip the ends off of them and put them on your new wire. I essentially did the same thing with my Super A. I wanted straight ends on the plugs instead of a 90* so I just cannibalized a NAPA set.

OK guys, those are valuable ideas. Since the cub just coughed for the first time, I'm moving ahead powerfully on this!
