Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Actually, yes, it could be used. The 7 & 8 mm specs are for the insulator diameter/cross section. For the spark, what is important is the center core conductor. Radio suppressed would indicate means that it is designed to reduce interference effect on car radios, Hi-temp would be just that but since all sparkplug wires are designed to operate in the engine compartment, all would have more or less the same capability on this, triple silicon would refer to how many coating/shielding/layer of insulator.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

    As long as it reaches the plug and the distributor cap, should work good.

I have an 84 Chevy s10 that I'm trying to hook a radio up in. I'm having a problem finding what wire to hook the radio power wier to. Any suggestion? Thanks, Frank

Best way is to take a new wire and place it straight in the fuse box, making sure you dont over load, there are normally spare fuses there go to one of them.

1986 chevy s10 runs then dies after a few minutes

Well your problem is either gas or spark as if you have gas to the engine all the time then your spark must be no good which means either the ciol is overheating and breaking down or the condencer is doing it,,so take the plug lead off as soon as it dies and see if you have a good spark { thats lay another plug in the lead and lay it on the engine for a earth and see if you have a spark} if yes then your problem should be petrol problem.....

My 84 blazer wont shift

Your 84 wiring harness is for the TCC ( transmission converter control) system.
On the left side of the carburetor (driver side) you should have 2 cables, one for the accelerator and the 2nd for the TV (throttle valve) control. You will need to adjust the cable for correct shift points. Under normal circumstances you will have 7 to 10 mm's extending beyond the cable adjuster block.
Should take care of the issue for you.
Let me know.
