I got a new set of 8mm wires for my 390GT and the distrubutor ends were not on the wires. I heard I need a sparkplug wire crimber to put them on after I make the right lengths?
Can I grab one of these at any autostore (are they $$!?) or is there another way?

tia,

Did you get those 8.0mm crane cam plug wires for only 10 dollars including shipping?

You can get crimpers at most auto stores. I think that they are around 20 bucks. You can also crimp them your self with regular tools but it may not be as preaty as crimpers can do em. Come to think of it if you are an unscrupulous bastard you can buy the tool, crimp your wires then return the crimper.

You could get the wire crimper/stripper tool at Auto Zone type stores or Radio Shack. It'll strip and crimp 22-10awg wire and crimp 7-8mm wire.
I found that with two pliers I could get a better crimp.
