Order a large (at least kitchen sized) garbage bag for the Taylor wires. You'll need it in about 30 days.

Or return them and buy something more reliable. Taylor wires habitually come bad in the box, or fail prematurely.

Here'* a pile I had from ONE car. 2 of the sets were warranty replacements, and failed also:

I'll second that.... My Taylors also failed... I ended up with Autolite Professional series wires and have never had another problem... Been through severeal sets of plugs and the wires are still good..

We had at one point more than a dozen members with bad sets, some with more than one.

I'm only aware of one car remaining on the forum with Taylor'*. Nobody has bought any in a year, and we don't care to.

I have Belden Premiums on both my Bonnevilles now. So far, so good. Many prefer them, they're not bad in price at NAPA.

Yes those are good quality... I have seen many people use the Napa Beldin wires and have seen no issues from any of them...

One set of my Professional series wires was actually manufactured by DelPhi

Must still be tears from making Bonnes look like slow cars at the track the other night.

I put the Autolite pro'* on one car and Delco'* on the other. Both are running great and no problems. The Delcos were $3 more than the Auto Pro'*. Neither are 8mm wires and fit nicely into the stock wire holders.

I'll third that, my taylors did not last a year :(

MSD from PFYC is about the same price and 10 times the wires. The Belden premiums are a good choice also and come with a lifetime gaurantee but only in blue
