Brian.........yep, yer weird 4-nipple frontmount dizzy had a "tube" that the sparkie wires were "fished" thru. It was a mechanical protective scheme to keep the sparkie wires semi-contained. When Ford went to the 5-nipple sidemount on the later 4-speed 8N, there is just ONE grommet on a bracket that all 4-wires went thru.
More importantly, use old fashioned COPPER-CORE (cut to length) 'stedda' modern string sparkie wire. (new sparkie wires with GOOD insulation, $15, cheap)
When I replaced the sparkie wires on my eazy starting 6-volt 52 8N, I bought a set fer HOT-ROD Pontiac V-8 that had right-angle rubber booties to fit under the gastank. My 9-yr son helped me replace them. NO soldering necessary. ........Dell, yer self-appointed sparkie-meister
