Does anybody know what the NGK wire set for a 67 1600

Does anybody know the correct wire set for a 67 Datsun Roadster. NGK recently sent me:
Stock #: 8106
Part #: RC-NE64
The wires are way too long.
Has anybody successfully cut long NGK wires to the correct length?

I have found over the years that a 1968 510 sedan spark plug set is very close to the 1600cc Datsun roadster and RL411 sedan engine original set.

I prefer to get a 'cut-to-length' kit and make my own.

I have kept the original factory spark plugs and the numbered set of spark plug wires that were delivered from my RL411 [in a special place, not in the car]. BTW I have kept all the original parts that I have replaced all these years just in case I might want to duplicate the as factory delivered car. No! I did not keep the original oil filter or the drained oil! But I have the original distributor cap and rotor. The engine mounts were replaced many years ago when they were still available. The only major deviation is that I replaced the oil pan drain fitting with a Toyota 18 mm plug and retapped the cast aluminum oil pan with a Ford 18mm spark plug insert. Why? Because I stripped the odd ball helicoil insert when doing an oil change, It's a "semi finished SAE thread" which guarantees that Helicoil will kiss you goodby! Only a Ford insert will fit! All other 18mm replacement insets are tapered seats, the Ford insert has a flat surface and mates up with the Toyota plug exactly! Of course you need 18mm plug seals to keep your driveway clean! But the sight of an antique DATSUN driving to to our local Toyota parts window will certainly draw the attention of the dealer's mechanics.

Have you tried OReillyseveral? If not I'd be glad to look for you tomorrow to see if we have anything when I'm at work! Be no trouble! Send me a pm if you want me to.
