"HEI wires" is the only difference the terminal ends?

I have a good set of MSD red 8.5MM HEI spark plug wires. Will these work on non-HEI distributor like MSD 85551? I think the only difference is the dizzy side terminal end on the wire, right? Are there any other differences? The wires seem to snap on to the MSD dizzy just fine...

Re: "HDI wires" is the only differece the terminal ends?

HEI, right? As long as the cap has male terminals they usually consider that HEI style. Actually, check the cap style in the link you posted. "Male/HEI".

Yes, "HEI" not "HDI", I left my brain at work...

No, you're spending too much time with that car and not getting enough sleep.
