1973 Dodge Vogue Question

Hello,

My name is James and I have been roaming the forums for some time until I decided to jump aboard. I have bought a 1973 Dodge sportsman vogue with the 360 carb motor and I seem to be having issues with completing the tune up . The standard spark plug wire seems to be 3 feet but on mine, they are 4 feet 11 inch (On the left hand side).

I have attached a picture to show what my motor looks like, even though the one in the picture is a 318 (They are very close).

So if any one can assist me in this, that would be great as I am losing arch due to the cables being melted.

I would buy a set of wires that you cut to the length you need for each cylinder and I would also but a spark plug wire management kit so you can organize the wires and keep them away from the manifolds

Thank you Chargerman for the quick response. I have attempted to do that as well from local distributors (Autozone, Napa, Orielly's), as well as attempted online from summit racing and jegs. However, no one seems to have the kit.

Jegs has informed me that I would have to buy the standard kit in order (About $40+) to make the cables myself but then turn around and buy a $20 (6 foot) additional cable for the lower port, which I am not wanting too do.

I had the same problem with my old 440. I bought 5 ft of bulk plug wire, ends and use the boots from a kit to make my own long plug wire. Most all parts stores should have bulk wire on a roll including NAPA.

Interesting. Did you have to make all the cables by hand or just one, if so were did you go for the cable and ends?

Just had to make the one long cable. I bought the cable and ends at NAPA. Assume they would still carry them.
