I need to make up some spark plug wires for an antique fire engine. There are 12 wires (6 for the mag system and 6 for the distributor system) Probably close to 50" of wire so I want to get the right stuff and the correct ends. The truck is a 1927 6 cylinder, 998 cubic inch about 100 horsepower. What size and type of wire should I get?

Completed the wiring project and it runs much better. Took me all day feeding lengths of wire through tough spots. This is an Ahrens fox fire engine. My family has a bunch of fire apparatus including 3 of these foxes. Total is 13 I think. The oldest is a 1914. Not brilliant but it"s what we do. I really like working on tractor but have to split my time.

What you need may have originally looked something like this.

Buy a roll of it, complete with ends and boots, and make your own.
