L50 - Chevrolet Bel Air Small Block Chevy Impala V8 8mm Double Silicone HT Leads
We first built this HT lead set for a customer for a 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air 283 (4.6 litre) HEI ignition only, however we believe they will fit most vehicles that use a small block Chevy V8 and have no king
These are custom made at our Bromsgrove HQ by our team in any colour you like. We build the leads to the specification listed below, but if your leads are any different, please contact us to discuss requirements.
The customer with the 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air 283 (4.6 litre) found that lead number 2 was fairly close to the exhaust manifold and heat was causing a problem, so we make this HT lead slightly longer than standard allowing you to bring it away from the heat.
These leads do not have a king lead as that is taken car of by the distributor, so there are only 8 HT Leads.
Because of the connections these leads use they are effectively spark plug to spark plug as both ends use spark plug connectors instead of the traditional distributor cap connectors.
Straight Spark Plug Connectors at the plugs
90 Degree Angled Spark Plug Connectors at the distributor cap
