Just bought some accell plug wires that require you to put the ends on them. What does the crimping tool look like, and where is a good place to get one?
TIA

Didn't they come with the wires? They sort of look like v-blocks that you use on your vise.

MSD makes a REALLY nice set that works like a ratcheting set of pliars... but they cost around $60! I've got em', and after a few sets of wires, they are indeed worth the money.

Mine must be the slightly older version, but here's a picture...

Thanks guys. I spotted a pair on ebay, but they are coaxial crimpers. The guy swears they are plug wire tool but I think he's badly mistaken.
Steve, I used your method of finding tdc and got the 66 fired up but now it won't idle.
It's always something.
