I found a set that closely matches what was on it. I should have gone with a universal set, but thought that buying a set meant for the engine would be good enough and save some time, but after returning the 1st one, and all the running around, it didn't save any time. I would recommend cutting a universal to fit for anyone needing new wires. You can get an exact job doing your own.

The napa spark plug wires I ended up using were 700126. They matched better than the set that fit a 1955 270ci engine. 1955 was as far back as the book went.

I ran out of time before the rain storm came so I hope to get another try at starting it tomorrow.

I scraped the pad. It starts with 302 so it probably is the original engine.
