Ignition Wires

Postby Shane.R13 » Tue Mar 13, 2018 9:47 am

Whats the recommended size of wire for the average outboard? I have some from the 40's to 80's that I'm looking into buying bulk wire to replace the ignition wires with. 7mm, 8.5mm 6mm? Any special type or style, like silicone or something?

Thanks.

sometimes... hard to find but my local Bike shop keeps it . Apparently radio interference isn't a big issue anymore A.M. radio is next to dead around here anyway.
