    Those are spark plug wire loom holders used on 273 Commando engines, pretty hard to find!

    Someone told me 273 and Hemi engines but not sure what years. My brother and I manufacture parts so we had them made which I should have by the end of the week. I have 10,000 coming.

    But I am trying to narrow what specific years and engine range it covers?

    I couldn't find anything where they were on 426 Hemi's, maybe I didn't look hard enough. Hemi's had the white round clips that held them tight to the cover, these white clips were also used on the 273 engines. I would be interested in a pair when you get them done, should be able to sell some to others as well. :glasses7:

    They are sure cool looking. I have owned a lot of Mopars and have never seen them. Most likely they broke and were tossed in the trash many years before I got the cars.

    I think I have a couple more than just in this drawer. I've picked them up over the years at the junk yard. I'm sure these particular holders did not come from 273 4bbl cars.

    :-k

    Would a 340 have them with the different wire routing?

    I think my 340 had them when I got the car in 1983, but I can't say for certain...

    they are useful for any car- even if not factory correct- they are great at separating the plug wires.....
