I believe these were the originals used with the 'crab' type distributor. one plug lead from each side crossed over to the other, and the lead was covered with that rope- like material.

Re: Stuck Valve

Make sure that the cam lobe is on the 'heel'. The valve beside the stuck one should also be open. Keep in mind also, that these valves bend very easily.

Re: 34 ignition lock
