Got a Flathead Ford V8? Front mount (59A) or top mount (8BA)? Either way, we’ve got you covered. Designed to work with both electronic and points-style distributors, e-FIRE plug wires give you strong fire power with high level RFI/EMI resistance. The spiral-wound, stainless steel suppression core is protected by tough fiberglass reinforcing braid for strength and flexibility. And the 100% silicone insulation resists high temperatures, moisture, oil and chemicals, and protects against arcing and voltage leaks. With low 500 Ohm/ft resistance, they get more energy into your plugs too.

But here’s the best bit. Easy installation is always high on our list. So with the Ford Flathead engine firmly in mind, the 90-degree cap terminals and boots are pre-fitted for smarter ‘distributor first’ installation. Why? Because we know how hard it is to trim those front mount wires up close to the radiator where access is limited. Your knuckles will thank you. Plus it leaves you free to use the supplied 90-degree spark plug boots or choose your own hot rod terminals. All leads are 7mm diameter so they fit through your flathead plug wire looms or tubes. They’re cut to length, too, with a long coil wire to reach your firewall.

Just one note: Our wires fit front mount Ford 21A ‘crab cap’ distributors (e-FIRE and Original Equipment are the same) and 1949-53 8BA distributors. They do not fit other early Ford flathead caps nor modern caps with male, HEI-type bullet-style terminals.

How-To: Stromberg throttle shaft extension kit

We’ve written a new ‘How To’ article, with clear pictures, for the Stromberg Tech Center on how to fit our new 9139K Throttle Shaft Extension Kit. If you’ve got one of the old school 4×2 intakes that stagger the 97 carburetors close together, like the Weiand WC4D and Edelbrock CD-694, or if you have a new blower plate for mounting your 97s on top of a GMC-style supercharger, this is the kit you need.
