The items in our clearance special will be selling at well below cost prices. These items have accumulated in our former warehouse that we're converting to our new additional machine shop for building engines. In the past, we would sell these items at local swap meets and other various selling venues. Due to time constraints, these items have to go. The Accel wires would be classified as old/new stock. They are in perfect condition.
We are selling the wires at nearly half the regular price. We have used these wires on many of our engines over the years without any problems, and still use them on certain applications.
These wires normally sell for $58.40. Our clearance price is nearly half that price.
We will do our best to point out any thing note worthy of these items. Go to our store to see many hundreds of such items.
There are many reasons as to why these items are being closed out. Listed below are some of the many possibilities. Most all these items are in perfectly new condition. No gimmicks. We are in a rush to get our second machine shop up and going.
ACCEL 5000 SERIES SUPER STOCK 8mm HIGH TEMP WIRES
UNIVERSAL FOR CUSTOM FIT WITH 90 DEGREE BOOTS, FITS MOST V-8 AND V-6 ENGINES
BRAND NEW/OLD STOCK.
These wires will work with most any V-6, V-8 or I-6 engine that uses the 90 degree boots on the spark plugs. Some engines that do not use the 90 degree boots may still be able to use these. Check for exhaust or header clearance if you are not sure. Most all SBC Chevy V-8's can use the 90 degree boots without any clearance problems. Universal wires are the only way to go for that perfect fit look.
The Accel 5000 Series wires are a much better grade than their 3000 and 4000 series. These wires have an excellent heat resistance rating, rated at 550 degrees vs. 450 for the Accel 4000 series.
This higher temp resistance is very desirable considering the high levels of heat most plug wires encounter. The heat destroys wires prematurely and allows voltage loss. These wires also have a much higher level of conductivity compared to the 3000 and 4000 series. Compare the ohm ratings on all the Accel wires and you will see there is a great difference between the 3000, 4000 and 5000 series.
We consider these wires to be an excellent grade of wire for use on any street rod or stock vehicle. We use these wires on our turn key engine packages. Dyno results show no difference in performance from higher grade wires.
These wires are universal to allow for custom fit. They will fit male style or female style distributor caps. The male and female terminals are included. The spark plug boots are at a 90 degree angle.
Pictured below is one of our Turn Key engines equipped with the blue wires. These seem to be very popular with many of our customers. Some will choose a black HEI dist. or red to contrast with the blue wires. We think the contrasting color choice looks much better.
We also offer these wires in black, and with straight boot ends. See our other listings.
With only 500 ohms/ft. of resistance, more ignition energy can reach the spark plug, producing a longer-lasting, hotter spark flame kernel. The results are higher performance through improved efficiency, quicker throttle response, and reduced emissions.
Their double silicone construction eliminates arcing and is rated to 550 degrees F. The high-gross wire jacket resists moisture, chemicals, and heat extremes for longer life and great looks. The fiberglass braid adds greater pull strength and terminal retention, while the stainless steel spark plug terminals provide excellent long life, electrical conductivity, and corrosion resistance. Both universal and custom-fit applications are available for early and late model cars and trucks. They're designed for street-driven, pre and post-HEI applications.
The 8.0mm 5000 Series wires are considered a medium to high end set of wires. As you may know, plug wires come in many different quality grades. The 5000 Series is just below the top of the line offered by Accel. They have four levels of plug wires, so one under the top grade is a very decent cable. Each grade up has a lower resistance rating and a higher temp rating. The ohm and temp. ratings of a plug wire are very important.
Good quality wires are very important for proper ignition. Beware of some of the 9.5-10mm low grade wires on the market. These knock-off wires have been found to be inferior in many different ways. They are composed of nothing more than a thick low grade rubber cable. The inside core structure is unlike any wire on the market.
We have first hand knowledge of the quality of these wires, as they were sent to us for evaluation. We hoped that they would be a decent low cost product to offer our customers. Upon close observation, these wires were the worst we had ever seen. The copper spiral windings were micro-thin, and upon testing the ohm rating, the resistance was very high. In fact, the ohm rating was worse then any wire we have ever reviewed. The conductivity was very poor. The many layers of protective jacketing used on most high quality wires was missing. The outer rubber jacket was made from a gummy soft rubber that has no resistance to heat. The center core in the wire was a fraction of the size of any name brand wire on the market.
So, don't be fooled by these low cost wires with a large mm diameter. The benefits of using a high end set of wires are many. Low quality wires will cause your engine not to perform the way it should, and they will degrade in conductivity at a very fast rate compared to name brand quality wires.
We have seen several sellers offering these low-grade wires in various colors. The tell tale in spotting these wires will be an unknown or unfamiliar name, an unusually low cost, large diameter cable size (9.5-10mm), and no spec ratings on the wire.
