I've got 3 - 4 nice plug wire crimp tools (even a pro crimp) but the ends never seem to stay on as well as the factory crimped ones.
Here's the wire holder set I used.

There are much nicer ones though...$$
That will look good routing the wires around those nice covers.
Still can't wait to hear that thing make some noise.
Thanks Eric, I'm getting closer. Correct belt is on it's way, throttle linkage has been figured out I think. So, I'm left with fuel lines, jetting of the carbs, and radiator hoses and she is ready to light.
