Looking to rewire my dragster.
Wiring is 19 years old and has had more than one redo/fixes at the track and has become a source of intermittent operation.
I'm looking for shielded wire for the primary distributor and crank trigger hookups.
All I can find is 18 ga or smaller. I'm a firm believer in using a larger size wire on DC circuits and think 14 ga would be a better choice.
MSD has a real nice shielded wire for the crank trigger but they do not sell just the wire by the roll.
Who has a favorite wire supply store?

How many conductors Bruce?
I assume 2 for the crank trigger....but what else do you need shielded?

Dave I want to shield both the crank trigger as well as the primary coil wire.
So I am looking for two conductor stranded with a shield.

I got a couple of these when I wired the new dragster....

I also bought a 100' roll of 18ga 6conductor shielded wire that I have about 20' left if you want it...
