I have a couple of single cylinder Wisconsin engines (AB, ABN, ACN, etc) that are missing the spark plug wires.  Most have the Fairbank Morse magneto, but some have Wilco mags.  Can I make replacements from parts or do I need to order ready made items?  If I can make them, what parts numbers am I looking for?

You need to make sure you are using copper wire core wires. Don't use the resistor wire like used in autos. They wil ruin the mag.

Like mentioned before, if your buying the wire make sure its the good stuff.

I do stock Wisconsin wires for most of the "Legacy" engines if you want to go that route.
