    HEI Distributor Wires

    A HEI dual pigtail connector for GM HEI ''coil in cap''. This new connector helps clean up your engine bay by eliminating the use of single spade connectors to make battery and tachometer connections. This connector is a tight positive fit with a locking tab and shark fin on it to ensure that the connection between your wiring and HEI stays intact. The connector houses two wires, one bright red for your 12-volt key switched wire, the other green for you tachometer to wire up. The high temperature connector has two ten-inch leads coming out of it.

  • All New Connector Made from Hi-Temp Material
  • 10-inch Color Coded Wire Leads
  • Replaces Original GM HEI Distributor Connector

    Manufacturer's Part Number:

    These 100% new Accel HEI distributors are the perfect choice for your performance street machine. Features include high-performance Accel electronics, centerless ground shaft and high-dielectric strength cap with balanced rotor for higher RPM efficiency than stock units.

    170072 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great to have an option. Second plug I've purchased. Might work perfectly with Accel HEI distributor cat but an OE replacement cap requires trimming of the sides of the plug.
