Hi Tom, I'm not saying he's not a good guy.
LOL that what I have at the moment, I got 2 sets of omega ones to keep the lengths more correct but would something a bit neater looking and the lead sets I got were quite old stock and when I stripped one down they were showing their age.
After my last conversation with magnecore I would never touch them again.
Rang them to say my leads have failed and I need to know how to send them back under warranty - got a defensive tirade of why it's all my fault and their product is perfection personified and impossible that it's failed!
Let's see how they deal with it from here /come through but I feel a factual write up coming on!
What upsets me more than that is that the leads made a great difference - before they broke down and caused all kinds of back firing issues.
I have a set of custom msd leads in Datsun spirit style on their way.
Took some ohm readings the other day and my mate who has a mx5 with Jackson racing spark plug leads were about 800 ohms and my leads were about 7000 ohms which very surprising so measured a lead off a 1ltr polo in the workshop and it was 11000 ohms.
The smaller the number, the better as it is less resistance for the voltage.
Higher impedance is better for radio interference suppression
also for some of my work cameras and sound kit. We use to get issues at the Goodwood Revival(analogue days).
My home made ones work great. I don't know what the resistance is but the sparks are good. I've been able to up the plug gaps from 0.6mm to 1.1mm.
Just fitted my Datsun spirit style leads and very happy with the fit and quality.
I was at the classic restoration show last weekend and accuspark sell a kit of parts to allow you to custom make your own..they also include a simple crimping tool.
I bought mine some time ago from Eiji but if not I would have done my own.

George - Did you ask accuspark about electronic kits for hitachi distributors?
Mr G. I'm definitely going to order a set when I sort my exhaust out. That is one of the best links shared IMHO!!!! :Thumbs:
I particularly like those separators!!!
I hope their products have a lot less errors than their spelling.
Hi John...I didn't I'm afraid...I am using a 280ZX turbo dizzy with built in CAS.
Separate names with a comma.
