Hi guys,

I'm trying to help a friend out who has two 38 Ford trucks with Flatheads. He's having trouble finding modern style wires for it and I was wondering if BBC wires would work and reach?
I got the idea from this link which would also fit SBC. Thanks

If you are going to use the original wire loom tubes you need to look for the small diameter wire, 6mm IIRC. Universal wires with the plug end molded on are fine since one end HAS to come off to thread through the tube. Mac's has original type for $52 and I'm sure Speedway and Drake does also.

Thanks, I know he called Macs and apparently the plug wires were backordered 2 months. I suggested trying to locate other wire sets that may work I don't know if he's planning on using the original tubes or not.
