Quest for spark plug wires (1973) 450sl

I presently have 7mm silicone wires on the car my mechanic says I need better wires. I have tested the wires by looking at them at night with motor running. There are no sparks. What advice does any one have. Are there better wires and will they provide better performance/milage etc.

Go to this sites FASTLANE. Look up your model/year. They have plug wires for your car. I don't know if MB put silicone wires on 1973 cars. Mine are metal.

Liberty Firearms Training - After years of trying to regulate California criminals with a never ending stream of gun control laws they have still not given up with the belief that if they make something a crime that criminals will miraculously start obeying the law.

...had a 72 450SEL and a 72 280SE 4.5> replaced plug wires with OEM and it worked perfectly

...perhaps you may need an ignition coil? vs. wires

good luck
