I'm sure this is old hat to some of you, but I've never made spark plug wires before, until tonight. I'm using Accell 8mm wires, with looms, and trying to run the wires thru the cap so they aren't real sloppy looking. What is the secret as far as length goes? I've fitted the wire to the plugs, thru the looms, and am bringing it up to the terminal in the cap. How far past the terminal do you actually cut the wire? Taking into consideration the amount of wire that is still needed to go into the boot, get the wire ends crimped, and put into the cap. I'm sure somebody has a magic number (length) without leaving too much slack. Any advice?
