Pertronix Flamethrower 8mm HT Lead set in Black for Type 1 aircooled 1200cc – 1600cc engines.
Often the cause of poor ignition is when your High Tension Leads or HT Leads as they are more commonly known are breaking down and need replacing.
Most modern electronic ignition systems require suppression style wires to preserve sensitive components. Flamethrower 8mm HT Leads provide enhanced RFI suppression and dual current paths for more power delivered to the spark plug.
HT Leads have a thick outer insulation around a central conductor core. This thick insulation prevents arcing from the cable to any earthed engine component. The central core is normally manufactured from copper.
RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) is naturally produced by the spark being radiated by the wires which may cause malfunctions in your electrical equipment.
Various manufactures have come up with various solutions to this problem by suppressing this.
In a nutshell the more electrical equipment you have in your car the better the quality of HT lead you will need.
If you are running electronic ignition then it is vital that you use a good quality set of leads so as not to effect the running of your car.
