    Does anyone have a picture of their spark plug wires rerouted in order to show off the motor? I am looking for ideas if you have suggestions or pictures

    With a front mounted distributor (Ford), it's not easy hiding them. I suppose you could make them go down in front of the engine and up between the exhaust ports. Lot of work. I bought a roll or wire from MSD, the terminal ends, the crimper tool and some clamps. Looks better than most Ford engines with spaghetti wires.

    I like this set up. Did you do them yourself? What type of separators are those?

    Summit or jegs sells wire looms, used a set on a 351W years ago. They are a universal fit but help clean up the look as shown above. Don't have any pics handy.

    I use zippy ties simply because I'm having to be cheap. But I feel that the look a Ford V-block engine should have the wires straight from the cap across the valve covers. That's just me.

    Good question. I found them at a garage sale. I think they were industrial something or another. I had to clamp them together and drill each hole big enough for the wire. I did make the wires. Cut to length, and add the ends. MSD sells them that way.
