APT Wire Wizard

Has anyone ever used on of these? There're a few Threads about it & a Pic in the Thread below. It was one of David Vizard's ideas years ago.

I distincly remember that ford put a setup like that on 80-81 lincolns 5.0 .
It was so confusing they dropped it , and caused crossfire/ misfire trouble.but they did have it . I remember using a earlier cap and wires to eliminate it.

A few more Pics. Says it add slightly less than 1" to stock HEI cap's height, mounts on top of HEI cap.
Looking at the middle Pic, this just hides the clutter. The wires just pass through it and attach to the stock HEI cap terminals so it shouldn't cause any problems like the Crab type caps.
May be a problem with Air Cleaner or Firewall clearance tho'.

Too bad GM/Delco didn't do something like this for the HEI.

I can't remember who made it but I used an aftermarket one for a SBC years ago and took it off within 20 miles due to cross firing and shorting. When I told the guy at the speed shop, he replied with " ya, I've heard that a lot about those". They still make them but the ones I've seen all look pretty chincy.
