  • Ignition: 63 Avanti 289 spark plug wire help

    Hello all this is my first time here and I’m hoping someone has some experience with this. I am having a hard time finding spark plug wires that will reach the furthest plug. From what I can find online (Taylor 64652) neither of the long wires will reach when being ran through the wire routing. I have tried local part stores too and what they can source does not fit either. I assume someone has ran in to this before and hopefully they can give some advice. Thanks

    What I did with my Avanti and my 62 Hawk was to buy bulk plug wire, terminals, boots and a crimping tool and make up my own leads. You can also get a universal wire set from NAPA, Summit Racing, etc, cut to the proper length and just install the distributor ends. If you don't want to do that, check with some of the Studebaker parts vendors to see what they have. Bud
