RE: [Chrysler300] 55 spark plug tubes & spring tin clips

I distinctly remember buying a set of those spring clips from a member in the club that was producing them.  Just can’t recall a name. 


Very effective.  Seemed a lot like standard black-colored steel strapping for the raw material—carefully bent to fit, hold and stick.


The ignition wire covers on the hemi rocker-arm covers look neat but I always wondered if this was the best way to get the spark from the distributor to the spark plug.  Racers and manufacturers seem to prefer lots of air space between spark plug wires and lots of insulated stand-offs to properly space out the wires.

Thanks to all for your suggestions and resources.  We have found all but those spring clips.  Denny told me I have much more patience than he does so it will be my job to try Marshall’s suggestion.  Thanks a lot Marshall!!  I’ll let you know if I ever get them done.


Love the fact we have this list server.

The spark plug tubes are available from Hot Heads Research and Racing.  I'm not sure if you can buy just 3 from them, but I've bought 2 sets.  The steel washers are available in packs of 3 at Tractor Supply Company and are labeled "bushing".  In my files I should still have a part number for them, but I'll need to search for a bit to verify. The original spring clips might be hard to find, so I made 2 sets of them from an old recoil starter spring (from a lawn mower engine).  For that you need a good pattern and a little patience in proper bending.  Depending on the spring quality you might need to heat it a bit.

Hi all, hope someone can help us. 

We are looking for 4 aluminum plug tubes with steel washers and a set of spring clips to hold the wires apart for our C300. Does anyone have any extras or can you direct us to who might have what we need.

Thanks in advance.
Sharon and Denny Gerber
