Does anyone know where I can buy complete, ready to use, spark plug wires for a 361ci engine?
Thanks!

The last two sets that I purchased, I got them from
the local NAPA.

From 1959 to the 1966 Production Year any 361-
383-413-426 wedge and the first series 440's
all a over the Valve Tappet style.

The same style was used in the Dodge Trks until
1968'ish with the big block's.

De Soto Convention

Rodger & Gabby, I bought a set at NAPA and, unfortunately, I had to measure and attach a terminal at the distributor end. I am not happy with them and suspect them to be an accomplice to a miss in the engine.
I'm thinking of using a set having a copper conductor even though I fear static in the radio.

Sorry, I won't be going to the Convention..too far from home.

They must have dropped the "no-brainer" set for
lack of a reasonable volume for requesting them.

keep looking on ebay. they appear often. I ordered a spool of 25 feet of o res. plug wire with a metal core and made up my own set for 55 desoto..it wasn't hard. if your ends and insulator is good reuse them. dave
