I have a set of hooker headers on a 350ci motor with Holly aluminum heads. My problem is on #6 spark plug wire touches the header and melts...
This is on the end of wire boot. Have only aprox.
1/4" from spark plug tip to header.
What can I do to fix other than tossing out the headers for another set? Does anyone else have a similer set up? what do you you use.
I don't know if it's boot design but on my closest plug the clearence is about 5/16" - to 3/8" at most with NGK plugs. I run 8mm petronics black plug wires with 90deg boots on the plug ends that on the close plugs are within 1/8" of my headers and I have no melting problems...

Boot design is certainly a factor on mine. The magnecor boots are small and provide the clearance I need. Were I to use MSD, for example, I'd have some resting on a pipe.
