Hi guys,

I have a set of reproduction date-coded spark plug wires on my '65 GTO. I have had them on the car for 15 years, but not for many miles because I don't drive the car more than 500 to 1,000 miles a year.
I was wondering what kind of luck anybody else here has had with these plug wires. I'm not sure who makes them for Ames, but I wonder if they are any good. I don't think I have a miss, but I was thinking about replacing them after 15 years. Maybe it isn't necessary.
Any input is appreciated.

I wouldn't hesitate to change them. Rubber and Plastic breakdown over time.
Just look for a good set of Black wires and be done.
I run plain black ACDelco wire sets.

You can put an ohmmeter on the plug wires on the bench and see what the resistance is

generally 7,000 to 10,000 ohms per foot.....more resistance than that may be too much.
Each plug wire manufacture may have a more specific value, but you can get an idea of resistance.

I just put a new date coded set on my '65 GTO, - before I bought them from Ames, I asked who made them, - Lectric Ltd.
