Hi All, I'm looking for the manufacture's part number for "spark plug wire crimpers". I would like to get the kind that does a "Factory quality" type of crimp. I've noticed that some crimpers are two part set-ups, with the crimping handles and the dies that go into the jaws are two different part numbers. I tried to call AMP/Tyco, (this is a large manufacture of spark plug wire connectors and crimpers), but they wanted the exact part number of the part to be crimped. Anyone out there got some that do a good job and would post the manufacture's name and part numbers on both dies and handles? Thank You Rick Z.

Taylor makes a nice hand help crimping tool, I don't know the part number, but any parts store that carries Taylor wires should be able to look it up. I have one, it works quite well, cost around $15. MSD also makes a nice crimping tool, but it is pretty expensive, well over $50. Good luck.

I just got a Taylor unit from Summit along with new wires. Haven't tried it yet but the Summit number is TAY-43390 MULTI PURPOSE TOOL. Cost was $13.39. If you get one through mail-order, get it along with other stuff as shipping/handling ($6.95) per order bumps up the price.

advice given to me by the local ignition guru is that the blocks ensure you dont overcrimp ( the blocks are placed in a vise to form the crimp), while with the hand tool he said, " Dont crimp it so the wire looks it's bulging out like Arnie." Given this, the hand tool works mint.

( plus if you roll your own you can use the black Taylor 8.5mm and fit it really nicely for a clean , stock, look.)
