If any of the three of us could remember that, I would have some for Ken. If you know any older guys that worked for MB, would you check with them there in Europe? This may have been a USA only situation. It was as far back as at least 1970, perhaps even earlier. I have not worked there since '72.

Ciao Ken,

Those ends you have pictured were actully used in-house by Autodelta with larger mm spark plug wires on the factory ex-works Autodelta GTA's. The stradale Cavis 5mm green wires were not adequate for the tuned Autodelta (AD) corsa motors but were used on GTA stradales. The spark plug wires I have seen Autodelta use were large diamater and orange with these end caps you have pictured. These spark plug wires I mentioned only came on the Autodelta ex-works 1600 GTA Corsa and on the ex-works narrow angle head GTA Jr. Corsa's. If you would like to PM or email me we can discuss in more detail. I have a picuture of the wires and caps as well on a ex-works corsa.

Were these Bosch ends very commonly used? Does anyone have or know were I might get a couple to replace 2 that are broken?

Seems like these leads ends are perfect candidates for 3D scanning and a 3D printer to do some reproductions.

I am having the same issue as above. I am fielding a GTA on a 1000 mile rally and discovered that I have some broken plug caps. Has anyone found a suitable replacement?
