One spark plug wire is all the hang up...

Figured since at my wits end, give this a try...

This concussion is causing problem after problem... Just curious if anyone has a spark plug wire that fit classic inline gasoline engine? Doesn't have to be too long as could just reach number one.

Bought the ends, but when crimped, they crumbled... Just one wire is all I need to get this lady back on the road.

Now going to waste some time and see if can find my silver solder. If can, maybe can solder the tips on. Then wrap in some electrical tape and hope for the best.

Thank y'all in advance!

Better off posting in the "vintage" section than the diesel section, but then you don't say it's even a Merc so probably wouldn't matter

What else would it be?

Did I not say I have a concussion?

This is for a 1985, interesting vintage.

Ha, knew someone here on the Diesel Forum have one.

The original was a meter (3.28 feet I.I.R.C.) long. Getting a picture now.

Picture is attached. These are the new style, F.Y.I..

Sorry so dark, the tube in the fixture above the engine fell out and broke.
