Suggestions for spark plug wires? Running a 12v system on the 1925 T engine. Currently has Packard TV-R suppression 2-Q-79H wires from prior owner. Motorcraft plugs F-11.
I am running 12 volt on my roadster with stock coils and wires, don't make a difference unless you plan to install a radio or something that dosen't like interference. I have even seen barbed wire used on a couple of engines.
See RJ&L They carry cotton covered soark plug wires both in copper and carbon core
My T Pu Roadster has been converted to 12v with VW distributor and alternator. This is how it was when I bought it. Modern plug wires and boots are installed. I have not attempted to fire up yet. The engine was rebuilt sometime in the last 10 years and has set for the past 5 years. So I am going through the fuel system (new carb and gas tank), new F11 plugs, distributor points, condenser and rotor. Oh yes, a couple squirts of Marvel Mystery oil on each cylinder. The only think I lack is the new wires. I can't seem to reference the wire ID for a source.
Don't use carbon core/suppression plug wires with original ignition coils. That will destroy the coils.
David, the wires on my Texas T Parts distributor equipped engine are the ones I made 20 years ago.
I bought some wire at the parts store and scavenged the wires around here for ends and some boots for the cap. :-)
I'm missing it, are the wires eaten up, rotted off or??
Those Packard wires should be quiet when you have the radio blaring in the T. ;-) Sorry, couldn't help it...
Ron, would you tell us sometime why the carbon wires will destroy original Ford coils? I'd very much like to hear. :-)

I forgot to mention that the 12 v conversion included alternator and modern coil. Just acquiring parts just in case. I suppose I will make my own plug wires.
Hey David, I checked in at texastparts and they do offer the T5029-D distributor spark plug wires if you need.
I'm not affiliated but that's where I got my dizzy.
