Plug wires with HEI??

I just put an HEI on the 360 and for some reason i cant reach number 8 and there are a couple that are pretty snug. i even tried a ford 460 wire set. Any idea or input??

Shoot, I can't remember off-hand, but the wireset I bought worked fine. I *think* it was for a big block Chevy, but I'm not sure. I can tell you that I found the part number by searching this forum though.

Have you tried changing the positions on the cap so it is as close as possible? *Don't do this unless you know what you're doing!*

Did you try Buick 455 HEI wires? I have heard of people using those.

If you get the DUI wires, they are REALLY NICE WIRES, but run $100 for the set. They have the cylinder numbers right on the wires.

I currently am running a TFI setup but will be swapping to an HEI over Christmas. I am running MSD 302 Ford wires and they fit with the TFI. If they fit with the HEI, I think I still might have the P/N for them in the glove box and can post back. Thanks.

I used the taylor for the ford....let me find the reference

from summit (ford 460 or F350 w the ICCCV , 1994 or 1992)

TAY-74655, $47 is what i ordered for my HEI

the box may say 90 degrees, but they are 120 degrees boot.. perfect fit... and for some awkward reason #7 is the longer wire than #6 0r#8 (distributor position)
74 wag, 349Kmiles on original ticker/trany, except for the rust. Will it make it to the next get together without a rebuilt? Status: needs a new body.
85 Gwag, 226 Kmiles. $250 FSJ test lab since 02, that refuses to give up but still leaks.
