What kind of spark plug wires should I use with my magneto?

The goal is to deliver a spark to the plugs, which is the most powerful, and of the longest duration that we can. If we route the spark to the plugs utilizing wires, which deteriorate the spark because of resistance or impedance, we are defeating our goal. For this reason, we must use wires of the highest conductivity. The type of wire that features this characteristic is silver plated copper core wire. If we have a magneto, which uses an external coil, we use this same type of wire as the coil wire lead from the coil to the cap.

Don Zig Magnetos is a factory authorized Mallory dealer and we sell the finest quality solid core spark plug wires and insulated sleeving. You will find them listed on our Mallory page.
