Chris,

The length of leads on mine are as follows - the dims are the length of cable between the plugs. These are the lengths Magnecor worked with + 25mm to each lead for safety ! All dims are in mm

1 - 540 + 25 = 565
2 - 550 + 25 = 575
3 - 630 + 25 = 655
4 - 530 + 25 = 555
5 - 430 + 25 = 455
6 - 595 + 25 = 620
7 - 390 + 25 = 415
8 - 470 + 25 = 495

Cylinder layout is:

8 - 7

6 - 5

4 - 3

2 - 1

Front of vehicle


Firing order if you need it is 1 - 8 - 4 - 3 - 6 - 5 - 7 - 2

Hope this helps.

Hello Chris - thanks for your enquiry regarding ignition leads for the 50th Anniversary Model. I am really sorry that it has taken so long to get a price to you, this has been mainly due our workload!

Anyway, prices for this special lead set are as follows:

8mm, blue electrosports cable 77.62 - standard road application
8.5mm, red KV85 cable 98.20 - best competition cable

Both of the above prices are excluding carriage which would be 6.40 and VAT.

Should you wish to go ahead and order we would need the following information from you:

Name
Full address (for delivery)
Contact telephone number (daytime)
Credit Card details (we accept Switch, Mastercard, Visa, Solo etc.). Expiry
date.
For Switch we require the Issue Number as well.
Please Note: We do not accept American Express (Amex).

It is advisable to fax or telephone your order to us.

IT IS NOT ADVISABLE TO E-MAIL CREDIT CARD DETAILS.

Kind regards,
