how often should ignition leads be replaced?

How often should ignition leads be replaced?
I've had my 308 HJ for around two and a half years now and they are still the units there when I bought it.

I found a set of those old type 'dot it yourself' copper cored mallory ignition leads. They came from a swapmeet ages ago.
I imagine copper cored leads would conduct quite well, but are the more modern spiralled core leads from brands like Eagle, top gun and MSD better than these in terms of performance and service life?

Wanted: HQ Prem front end or non commercial front

Hey guys I am new here and have 2 HZ utes. One I have been using for parts the other I am doing up slowly. The one I have has the commercial HQ front end and I want to change this with either the premier dual headlight setup or the single headlight setup. So I am after the radiator support and nose cone if someone could help me out. I am located south of Perth but will happily pay for shipping and organise courier as it seems impossible to find something here.
thanks Pete

Column shift spares for sale and other HK-T-G parts

I have a full set of column change linkages for an HK-T-G all syncro box. Got a few spare levers and such, washes, couplings and all that sort of thing. Even a spare shifter in good condition, weld is good.

Also have a few different heater spares. A box with great condition heater element with no leaks and under dash part also there. I also have the earlier under dash-vent type one also but its missing the tape also in good condition.

I'v got a full diff assembly and drums (3.55 gears) if any one is after one.

BRISBANE AREA, will post the smaller items.

Fusible Links

Took the beast for its 1st open road run today after the transplant. Came to a halt part way due to the wire from the Starter to the main loom (Red thick one with the fusible link) came loose and rubbed on the hot exhaust manifold. Thus the fusible link and cable are now burnt to a crisp.

Hotwired it to get home, and now to rewire the loom so it will not happen again.

Had a quick check on EBAY for replacement fusible links but non to seen, there are full looms for sale but I only want the fusible link part. Being a sparky by trade wiring is not an issue.

HT AXLE WITH HQ DRUMS AND WHEELS.

HI ALL!,
Just recently converted my HT axles to HQ stud pattern. All went well but i dont like the gap between the axle flange (where the wheel locates) and the inside diamneter of the hq wheel( just using standard hq 14inchers). Im sure alot of people dont worry but i dont want to put too much pressure on the wheel studs. Has anyone had ot get spacers for this before and can yopu tell me where i can get them?
Help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers
Luke
