Getting Wired

Spark plug wires have two main objectives: transfer the spark energy and suppress the Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) that the spark voltage projects. MSD's 8.5mm Super Conductor is said to deliver both, so you get the best of both worlds. Because it uses a special copper conductor, MSD's Super Conductor Wire has less than 50 ohms of resistance per foot. This conductor is wrapped very tightly around a ferro-magnetic impregnated center core that gives the wire extremely high EMI suppression. This design ensures that optimum spark energy will reach the spark plugs while EMI noise is held at a minimum. The sleeve of the Super Conductor is a combination of silicone and synthetic materials to give the wire supreme resistance against heat, chemicals, abrasion and terminal pull-off. The 8.5mm wire is available in bulk, universal and custom sets in red or black. Information: MSD Ignition, Dept. FW, 1490 Henry Brennan Dr., El Paso, TX 79936, 915/857-5200,

An Adaptable Hitch

Do you tow a variety of trailers with, perhaps, a variety of vehicles? If so, you might be interested in the new adjustable Magnum Hitch. This interesting hitch offers 12 different variables of towing height, 6 inches of drop or rise and enables level towing by being walked up and down the pin block in 1 inch increments for different height adjustments. The class IV-rated Magnum is also available in 8-, 10- and 12-inch drops. The Magnum also gives you the convenience of changing hitch-ball sizes with the pull of a pin. Information: Quick Draw Hitching Systems, Dept. FW, 1325 W. Industrial Cir., Springville, UT 84663, 866/237-8448,
