I am truly going back to the basics. Can anyone tell me if there are any tricks to feeding new spark wires down the tube which encloses the wires above the head of the engine? As always, thanks for the help.

One important note, If your N is a 6-volt it is especially important to use copper wire plug wires. They push quite easily, start at the longest and work your way forward making sure there is no twisting (pull each wire back and forth a little as you progress and you will know) use of silicone is helpful as mentioned. Copper wire is of key importance in all N's, you will be glad you have it!

On the early Ford cars Henry had his people run the coil and generator wires inside the spark plug conduit along with the four plug leads on the left side. I wonder if they did the same on the Ns.I am currently working on a 1936 Ford and found that the use of the silicone lube works wonders.A reminder that if you are, for any reason using carbon graphite plug leads then you must not pull on them...big g

Bonsoir Henry,

I had to do that.
I put inside the metal pipe 4 smalls steel wire and I pull the 4 spark wires, one by one, starting with the longest one and so one.

I use braided fishing line, but apart from that, just like Daniel suggests. A little WD40 on the wires makes them slide smoothly. Pull the wires before you apply the plug connectors.

I've discovered I love spray silicone for jobs like this. Just works wonders for me.

I used the silicone spray too. I attached the new wires to the old ones and feed them through one at a time. Be generous with the spray!!!!
