I'm going to use the 123 tune+ dizzy on my re-built 1275, what HT/LT leads would be best?
Also I'd rather have ones which come at the 'right' length not all random sizes that look a mess in the engine bay. Also must be available in yellow!

Most people seem to fit 7mm and 8mm silicon. These are £12 - £20.

 

I personally want the Magnecor KV85 8.5mm for my MPI, but they aren't cheap at £63 a set

To be honest and when you see the maximum output your coils produce on a scope the bigger expensive cables offer little in the way of a better spark over good quality standard leads, other that better build quality and insulation on the famous damp lead issue, £20 off the Minispares site would do the job

So after your post, I looked at my plugs and they were rotten.

 

The plugs I wanted were £65, and having just spent out on quite a few repairs I needed a cheaper option.

 

So I brought a set of 8mm red plugs from Minimine ltd on eBay. £11.99 including delivery and the quality is really good. Super quick delivery. 

 

First time start and no problems so far.
