2 Claims. (Cl. 174--36)
This invention relates to a shielded cable such `
as may be used to couple parts of a circuit, and
also for connecting ignition wires contained in
a manifold with spark plugs.
Where a fault exists in a portion of an ignition
wire outside the manifold it has been necessary,
when said wire was continuous. to remove the
entire wire from the manifold and replate it.
An object of this invention is to provide a
run and a detachable connection made in the
elbow so that the wire conductor is centrally dis
posed throughout its entire length and the maxi
mum resistance secured from the insulating ma
The invention consists of the construction,
combination and arrangement of parts, as herein
illustrated, described and claimed.

wires to spark plugs in such manner that any
