Once you've bought 2 sets, you should have enough parts to keep you 
going for years.

I have any parts you might need, plus plenty of Belden SP wire to 
replace old wires that may have gotten hard and cracked. I find that 
the only parts that tend to need replacement over time are the wire 
and the occasional SP connector that goes open. The OG parts were 
exceptionally reliable.

I have a few Bosch SP cable sets, but I've found that they didn't get 
the lengths right. None of them are long enough to reach #1 while 
running in the correct path. I have to make a new wire for #1, 
discard the shortest wire (or save it for someone's coil) and modify 
the others for 2, 3, and 4.
